Academic Affairs


The Office of Academic Affairs, led by Dr. Jeanne Daffron, Provost, 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.

SUMMER YOUTH WRITING PROGRAM – The Prairie Lands Writing Project is currently hosting two summer youth writing programs at MWSU for the Saint Joseph School District (May 17-June 9). “Write the World on Fire” is our Elementary School Writing Project, with approximately 100 students participating, and “Voices Unleashed” is our Middle School Writing Project, with approximately 25 students participating. Students attend sessions with PLWP Teacher Consultants which combine writing and reading activities with workshops and local publishing opportunities. These programs have been a popular draw for area youth for many years, strengthening Missouri Western’s partnerships with local schools and providing opportunities to showcase our campus to potential future Griffons and their parents.

SUMMER CLASSES – The 8-week and first 4-week sessions of summer classes begin on May 31.
