By a unanimous vote, the Board of Governors at Missouri Western State University has removed the state of financial emergency they declared two years ago.

“The significant efforts undertaken to vastly improve the University’s financial position provide clear indication that MWSU no longer meets the criteria necessary to be in a state of financial emergency,” said Dr. Elizabeth Kennedy, president of Missouri Western. “The progress that the University has made, and will continue to make, has been possible only through the diligent hard work of Missouri Western’s staff, faculty, and administrators as well as the leadership provided by the University’s Board of Governors. To survive and thrive in such difficult times and under such challenging situations has required substantial perseverance among the entire campus community, which has responded with resiliency, strength, and dedication.”
