Spring commencement ceremonies at the University of Missouri System were in full swing as students and families celebrate the culmination of years of hard work.
“Having a college degree gives you a leg up in life,” says UM System President Tim Wolfe. “Higher education brings rich rewards—not only to the individual but to society as a whole.”
Throughout the four campuses, more than 15,000 degrees will be conferred this year alone—a nearly 30 percent increase from the 11,644 degrees awarded a decade ago.
