President Choi talks with College of Engineering faculty and staff in Ketcham Auditorium.

For the next stop on my campus tour, I met with faculty and staff from the College of Engineering. Their work supporting our students’ growing interest across ten undergraduate degree programs is remarkable. I was trained as an engineer and feel kinship with those who study and further the field.

We discussed continuing that momentum with MizzouForward. To date, about 10% of new MizzouForward hires are from engineering – and we have plans to recruit even more.

I challenged faculty to share with national colleagues the many perks of MizzouForward, including startup investments in new faculty research. I also encouraged them to be ambassadors for Mizzou on campus and to advise students to consider graduate school early in their academic career.

As the college expands its influence, we will explore additional innovative collaborations – such as those with industry partners and the team at the MU Research Reactor (MURR) – which benefit our research mission and positively impact Missouri.
