About Missouri State University

Missouri State University is a public, comprehensive metropolitan system with a statewide mission in public affairs, whose purpose is to develop educated persons. The University's identity is distinguished by its public affairs mission, which entails a campus-wide commitment to foster expertise and responsibility in ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement.

The academic experience is grounded in a general education curriculum which draws heavily from the liberal arts and sciences. This foundation provides the basis for mastery of disciplinary and professional studies. It also provides essential forums in which students develop the capacity to make well-informed, independent critical judgments about the cultures, values and institutions in society.

The Missouri State University campuses are structured to address the special needs of the urban and rural populations they serve.

  • Missouri State University-Springfield is a selective admissions, graduate level teaching and research institution.
  • Missouri State University-West Plains is a separately accredited open admissions campus primarily serving seven counties in south central Missouri.
  • Missouri State University-Mountain Grove serves Missouri's fruit industry through operation of the State Fruit Experiment Station.
  • Missouri State Outreach provides anytime, anyplace learning opportunities through telecourses, Internet-based instruction, iTunes U and through its interactive video network.
  • The University also operates various other special facilities, such as the Darr Agricultural Center in southwest Springfield, the Journagan Ranch in Douglas County, the Jordan Valley Innovation Center in downtown Springfield, the Bull Shoals Field Station near Forsyth, Baker's Acres and Observatory near Marshfield, the Missouri State University Graduate Center in Joplin and a branch campus at Liaoning Normal University (LNU) in Dalian, China.
