The Office of Government Relations is the lobbying function on the state and federal level for the entire University of Missouri System including its four campuses, MU Extension and MU Health Care. Each year, the University sets its legislative priorities focused on funding its core and building for the future. Supporting these priorities will help the University carry out its mission and provide a significant return on investment for the state of Missouri.
In February 2022, University leaders announced the results of an economic impact study that found UM System and its four universities have a $6.5 billion economic impact on the state of Missouri. The study was conducted by Tripp Umbach, a nationally recognized firm that has completed more than 500 economic impact studies for clients across the globe.
