Mizzou community, supporters, and friends,

I appreciate the thoughtful comments I’ve received since giving my November 15 campus address on student success. Conversations—and actions—will continue to take place around this topic. If you haven’t yet joined the conversation, or are unsure how you can become involved, visit my website to “be a part of it.” There you will find specific actions that can be undertaken by students, parents, alumni, faculty & staff, and members of the business community. Add your voice today.

Mizzou has the power to transform lives. Senior chemistry major Christopher Dade is one student who has enjoyed new opportunities at Mizzou—including a 2016 internship in Germany where he researched new Alzheimer treatments. More recently, Christopher was one of just 12 students in the nation to receive the prestigious Mitchell Scholarship, which will allow him to study in Ireland following graduation. “I am very thankful for the support I received at Mizzou in preparing me for this next chapter,” he says.

So many members of our community have great #MizzouMade stories. What’s yours?

Until next week,
