A climate for diversity
The University will be inclusive and create a climate for diversity so that we can recruit excellent faculty and students from many backgrounds who enjoy the freedom to express and debate diverse viewpoints and issues. Missouri State University strives to have a campus community that looks more like the world, and have our students, therefore, prepared to function well in that world.
The faculty members at Missouri State University are committed to the development of educated persons through scholarly research and teaching. The University realizes that global exposure is essential for the faculty in order to pass on the positive aspects of such exposure to the students. The University facilitates and promotes international exchanges, not only for students but also for faculty. Students gain direct benefits as faculty members bring back experience and information to share within their classrooms.
