  • Despite budget challenges, we’ve talked a great deal about our focus on maintaining quality in our primary teaching mission. In the past few weeks Bloomberg BusinessWeeknews came out with a list of top undergrad programs that turn out S&P 500 CEOs, and we were pleased to see that our four campuses appeared on their “top 10” list.
  • Note that these CEOs hail from all four of our campuses—4 each from Mizzou and S&T, 2 from UMSL and 1 from UMKC.Of course, we have many, many more CEOs that hail from our campuses…and many more leaders in a huge number of professions, nonprofits, etc.The key point here is, we need to be constantly vigilant to providing a quality education for all of our students…and we will continue to see our graduates names in high places. My continued thanks to our faculty for all they do to contribute to making our state and country stronger and wiser through each of our graduates.
