COLUMBIA, Mo. — During his State of the State address, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson released his budget recommendations for Fiscal Year 2023, which included key investments in higher education. His recommendations included a 5.4% increase to the core budgets of higher education institutions across the state and would provide an additional $265 million for capital projects at University of Missouri institutions.

“For more than 180 years, we have partnered with the state of Missouri to educate future leaders and improve the lives of Missouri citizens through groundbreaking research discoveries,” said Mun Choi, president of the University of Missouri. “Funding such as this helps us maintain high-quality education and deliver on our research mission. This is very encouraging news for higher education, and we are grateful for the governor’s bold leadership and his recognition of the critical role the University of Missouri plays in the vitality of our state.”
