Mizzou community, supporters, and friends,

I’ve been at MU now for just over 100 days. During that time, I have begun to get to know the MU community—and have begun to understand our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Earlier today, I shared my thoughts on student success in the first of a series of campus addresses. If you weren’t able to attend, you can view a recording here. We will cover additional topics in the next two addresses over this academic year.

During today's address, I made some exciting announcements about new and expanded scholarships which are part of our ongoing efforts to increase affordability for our citizens. In addition, I laid out a number of action items for our faculty, staff, students, administrators, alumni, donors, and other constituents. I encourage you to be a part of it. This is a team effort—to move forward best, we must move forward together.

I also encourage you to visit our #MizzouMade site to read about Sara Inman, Travis Inman and Chloe Cameron. I shared an abbreviated story about each of these Tigers during today’s address, and I think you’ll enjoy learning some additional details about these fantastic current and former students.

Until next week,
