A New Campaign
You can help Mizzou grow.
Last month during Homecoming, you probably noticed that MU announced a new comprehensive campaign titled Mizzou: Our Time to Lead. You will see those words frequently during the next five years as we seek the time, talent and treasure of our Mizzou family. So, what will the campaign do for Mizzou, and how can you help?
A campaign creates a platform for MU to request support from alumni and friends. It builds toward a goal, in this case $1.3 billion, and along the way creates momentum for achieving its aims. During the campaign, we hope to increase the university’s endowment, create signature academic centers and institutes, and begin a campus renaissance with our facilities. We also hope to build a bigger base of support and enhance Mizzou’s brand.
Although large donations can dominate campaign headlines, Mizzou cannot achieve its goals without your participation in the life of the university. Toward that end, the association will launch new programs, communications and opportunities that offer you chances to become involved.
I encourage you to participate. Recruit a student, lead a chapter, give to a campus need, join the alumni association — the possibilities are legion. The tie that binds us all is the desire to make Mizzou stronger. With that desire and this campaign, how Mizzou looks in 2020 is up to us.
