Academic Affairs


The Office of Academic Affairs, led by Interim Provost, Dr. Doug Davenport, ensures the quality and integrity of all academic programs.  Here you will find access to the information and resources that make up the university’s rich academic life. At Missouri Western, students’ experiences inside and outside the classroom are seamlessly integrated in an environment where faculty, staff and students live, learn and serve the broader community.

SHOUT! – The School of Fine Arts, Department of Theatre, Cinema and Dance and the Department of Music bring you a special production of SHOUT! Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on the evenings of Aug. 10 and 11 and Sept. 7 and 8 with matinee performances on Aug. 12 and Sept. 9. This mod musical brought back the beautiful birds and smashing sounds that made England swing in the ’60s. Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein, SHOUT! features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir with Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Goldfinger.”
