University of Missouri faculty, students and alumni worked together to identify competitive assets that set MU apart from other universities. These assets underlie four dynamic initiatives that collectively are called the Mizzou Advantage.
- Food for the Future
- Media of the Future
- One Health, One Medicine: The Convergence of Human and Animal Health
- Sustainable Energy
- Educational Programs
The purpose of Mizzou Advantage is to increase MU’s visibility and stature in higher education and to strengthen these areas:
- Quality of faculty and students
- Instructional programs
- Value of an MU degree
- Success of grant proposals
- Fundraising results
- U.S. and Missouri economies
- Venture-capital investment
A network of collaborators — faculty members, centers, departments, corporate partners and other universities — will drive activities related to each competitive asset. MU has a $6 million annual financial plan to increase the impact of those collaborators, whose efforts will result in more grants and opportunities to recruit the most prominent scholars and scientists. Not only will Mizzou Advantage contribute to MU’s status in higher education, it will create jobs and improve the quality of life for Missourians.
