Big Impacts and Continuing Support
We finished 2022 with strength and pride, as the stories below demonstrate. That is especially evident when you consider our UM System impact report. The partnerships we have made with local and state stakeholders continue to shape Missouri's future for the better. This report is a powerful tool and shows how our university contributes to statewide success and outreach in all 114 counties of Missouri.
Our state’s leadership recognizes the value UM brings to the state as well. Missouri’s legislature approved a supportive budget that includes a 7% increase to core funding – the largest increase in 25 years. In addition, UM received $117 million from the governor’s budget for our priority capital projects.
Let’s continue to achieve excellence together in 2023.
