Throughout the year, I’ve been meeting with faculty, staff and leadership from each of our 13 schools and colleges to see how we can better support their work. Next up was the College of Arts & Science – the largest academic unit on campus.

A&S encompasses more than 40 departments and programs, including museums and a literary magazine, that pursue a wide range of research and creative works to expand our understanding of the world. This semester, around 20% of freshmen began their time at Mizzou in A&S.

As a land-grant university, we have the privilege of translating our research and teaching directly from campus to Missouri. With more than 700 faculty and staff representing many areas of expertise, A&S is a great example of our breadth and impact.

I was grateful for the open discussion and the opportunity to share how each person can help recruit new students, contribute to advancement efforts and build a welcoming campus for all.
