Our University

The University of Missouri was founded in 1839 in Columbia, Mo., as the first public university west of the Mississippi River. Today, MU is a $2.1 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 the flagship campus of the University of Missouri System. It is one of only 34 public universities in the Association of American Universities. The state’s most comprehensive university, MU offers more than 300 degree programs through 19 colleges and schools and is one of only five universities in the nation with law, medicine, veterinary medicine and a nuclear research reactor on one campus. MU has a diverse enrollment, with 35,000 students representing every county in Missouri, every state in the nation and 120 countries.
