Support the Student Experience
Many life lessons take place outside the classroom. These learning opportunities are an essential part of the Mizzou student experience.
Our students learn leadership, communication and social skills in more than 700 student organizations and through interaction with the Student Affairs staff. They develop life skills through community service, volunteer opportunities and leadership programs. They learn problem-solving skills that give them a competitive edge in the workforce.
We are proud of what we offer our students, but we must continue to evolve to meet their ever-changing needs. You can support Mizzou student experience by investing in one of the priorities below or by designating your gift to one of the many programs that benefit our students.
Mizzou Student Experience Fund
Successful students graduate prepared for personal and professional success in an ever-changing, global environment. Student Affairs staff care deeply about developing healthy, happy, and fulfilled citizens of the world. We are proud of the programs and services we offer, but we must continue to grow to meet our students’ evolving needs. Gifts to the Mizzou Student Experience Fund allow us to build on existing programs and meet needs as they arise.
Leadership and Service Programs
Leadership experiences help students meet their personal, academic, and professional goals. By enhancing existing programs and developing new ones, we can help more students find leadership opportunities and hone their organizational skills. Mizzou's student leadership and service initiatives include the Chancellor's Leadership Class, Emerging Leaders Program, Greek Life, Mizzou Leadership Academy, Alternative Break, Venture Out, and more.
Mizzou Speakers Series
The Mizzou Speakers Series connects leaders who are nationally and internationally known in their respective disciplines with our students in a compelling dialogue. The Mizzou Speakers Series helps bring to campus inspiring individuals such as poet Maya Angelou, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, and child abduction recovery advocate Elizabeth Smart. Gifts to the Mizzou Speakers Series enhance our ability to attract speakers of increasing prestige to campus.
