Mizzou’s transformative trajectory

U.S. News and World Report released their annual rankings, and the University of Missouri has a lot to celebrate. We remained the No. 1 best value among public national universities in neighboring states and the No. 12 best value among all public national universities. Here are a few other highlights:

No. 58 among national public universities

No. 72 best value among national universities (up 13 spots from last year)

No. 73 best college for veterans (also up 13 spots)

No. 122 among all universities

These rankings illustrate what our stakeholders already know: The University of Missouri is an institution of excellence at all levels and a dynamic hub of innovation in the Midwest. Our state, national and global reputation reflects our work across campus to forge new discoveries and help our students succeed. And while we’re pleased with our progress, we are far from finished.

In the coming year, we’re going to continue investing in our research, education and engagement missions — an effort that will receive a major boost when the Roy Blunt NextGen Precision Health Building opens next month.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support Mizzou’s growth. Our university truly is on a transformative trajectory.
