Missouri and MSU: A shared past. A vision for the future.
Founded in 1905 as the Fourth District Normal School, Missouri State University (MSU) has played a significant role in the state’s progress, innovation, and creativity. To commemorate the Missouri Bicentennial, MSU will host a series of publicly available webinars beginning January 2021 to explore and contemplate what’s next for our state. “Missouri and MSU: A shared past. A vision for the future.” will examine topics important to the growth of Missouri – including agriculture, diversity and inclusion, education trends, health care, Missouri caves, and technology – and explore how MSU and its partners will have an effect on the state today, tomorrow and for decades to come.
