The fall semester is wrapping up, and there’s plenty to celebrate at the University of Missouri.
On campus, we look forward to recognizing more than 1,780 Tigers who will receive degrees during commencement ceremonies this weekend. Congratulations to all our graduates on their accomplishments. They are well prepared to make a difference in Missouri and our nation.
Our student-athletes have also achieved incredible success, including Mizzou Volleyball, which just finished a historic first season with Head Coach Dawn Sullivan. The Tigers made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament, and three players – Maya Sands, Jordan Iliff and Lauren Forbes – were named to the Academic All-District Team. Coach Sullivan was named SEC Volleyball Coach of the Year. Congratulations to Coach Sullivan and the entire team.
The MU community accomplished so much in 2023 – from cancer-fighting breakthroughs at MURR to a record 76% graduation rate. We look forward to even more excellence in teaching, research and engagement in the new year, and to cheering on all our student-athletes competing over break – including Mizzou Football in the Cotton Bowl.
I hope all our students, faculty and staff have a great holiday season.
