Initial Celebration Goal of $20,000,000 has been reached but we’re not done yet!

Dr. Robert A. VartabedianDear Friends,

Since our founding in 1915 as the St. Joseph Junior College to our evolution to a modern, vibrant campus that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, our commitment to improve and transform the lives of students has never changed. From our engaging applied learning opportunities, to our more than 100 programs of study, to our active student organizations, Missouri Western provides students with an affordable and truly transformational education.

As we celebrated the University’s Centennial in 2015, we had an opportunity to reflect on the past 100 years of growth, and the nearly 25,000 students who have benefited from earning a Missouri Western education. We now have the opportunity to plan and build support for the next 100 years. Our mission compels us to continue transforming lives. I believe we are at a critical juncture in our history, and I am excited to share some exciting information about our plans for the future.

Your support of Missouri Western continues to be invaluable as we work together to bolster the region’s prosperity and continued economic growth. I invite you to review our plans for the future, and it is my hope that you will consider the importance of our mission and the partnership opportunities that lie ahead.

With your support, we will determine our future. I look forward to working with you to continue transforming lives.

Dr. Robert A. Vartabedian
