The University of Missouri was founded in 1839 in Columbia, MO, as the first public university west of the Mississippi River and the first state university in Thomas Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase territory. Today, MU is a $2.2 billion enterprise and an important investment for the state and nation.
MU provides all the benefits of two universities in one: It's a major land-grant institution with a statewide mission of service to citizens and Missouri's largest public research university. Considered one of the nation's top-tier institutions, Mizzou is one of only 34 public universities, and the only public institution in Missouri, to be a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU). The MU Libraries belong to the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA), and the statewide MOBIUS consortium.
The state’s most comprehensive university, MU offers more than 300 degree programs through 18 colleges and schools. Many departments also work closely with the University Extension program to bring the benefits of research to Missouri citizens. The University of Missouri has a statewide network of 10 research parks and business incubators, each designed to help faculty, entrepreneurs and businesses collaborate to move innovative research to the marketplace, and the Mizzou Advantage program encourages innovative interdisciplinary collaboration.
Mizzou has a diverse enrollment with 35,000 students from every county in Missouri, every state in the nation and 120 countries. The fall 2015 student body includes Mizzou’s largest number of high-achieving students who scored a 30 or higher on the ACT, the state’s biggest international student enrollment and a record number of students from minority groups. MU’s nationally prominent faculty bring discoveries into the classroom, publish more than 1,600 books and scholarly articles each year and spend about $237 million annually on scientific research. The National Science Foundation has recognized MU as one of the top-10 universities in the country for undergraduate research opportunities. Mizzou graduates more than 8,000 students annually, granting 27 percent of all bachelor's degrees, 23 percent of master’s degrees and 62 percent of all doctoral degrees earned at Missouri's public universities.
Located in central Missouri with easy access to St. Louis and Kansas City, Columbia, MO is consistently ranked one of America’s best places to live because of its excellent quality of life.
