Our Promise Regarding Community:
Imagining and Making Missouri’s Future
The benefits of the Our Promise campaign will not stop at the University’s boundaries. They will extend into the region, the state and across the nation.
When you support the campaign, you elevate the quality of life in our communities that are served by the University’s three Missouri campuses. Missouri State makes a significant difference in the lives of local residents: We offer arts and culture, we are committed to the revitalization of the downtown area and we’re one of the city’s largest employers.
In addition, we serve as an incubator of ideas and a place where innovative thinking is encouraged. This results in a highly educated workforce, which brings better-paying jobs and new corporations to the region.
Your investment in Our Promise will reach beyond Missouri State’s three campuses as well. The University’s public affairs mission, our pledge to make the world a better place, permeates everything we do.
The University wants all members of its community to be connected to real-world issues and to participate as informed voters and volunteers. Your support helps us mold students into ethical leaders who will put the public affairs mission into practice when they graduate, whether they are in Springfield or in Shanghai.
Our Promise also seeks to bolster the unique University resources that are available to the public, such as sports facilities and libraries.
After all, the more relevant we are to our community, the more we solidify the University’s reputation in the state and the nation. If you’re an alumnus, that enhances your degree.
We promise to continue the realationship with our local communities as an active partner in the University’s mission, vision and goals.
