Study Abroad in Japan
Students who enroll in “The Global Lawyer” course will travel to Japan with Dr. Wilson on May 6-16, 2020. The class will explore Kyoto, Tokyo and Kanazawa while learning about the U.S. and Japanese systems of Tort Law. Each participating student will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
Starting in fall 2020, Missouri Western will launch an esports program. This initiative will provide a connected community for students while helping them develop essential real-life career skills, like teamwork, creativity, problem-solving and communication skills.
The Global Center will be an expanded version of the current International Center, with an emphasis on global experiences as well as recruiting and retention. It will be housed in Eder Hall 101. More information is coming soon.
Center for Service
Starting in 2020, through the newly established Center for Service, you can earn up to three credit hours toward your degree for your service-learning activities. For every 40 hours of qualified community service you participate in, you can earn one credit hour free of charge. Service-learning and volunteer opportunities are arranged through the Center for Service and also become part of your co-curricular record.
At Missouri Western, we are always looking for new ways to bring educational opportunities to you. Beginning in fall 2020, we will adopt an innovative approach to course scheduling called Gold Fridays. Most classes will be held Monday-Thursday, with Fridays free to explore hands-on learning like internships, volunteering, research, practice, club meetings, events, meeting with professors, travel, work and more.
Griffon Guarantee Scholarship
Starting in fall 2020, the Griffon Guarantee Scholarship is different from other scholarship programs. It starts with an initial award ranging from $500-$6,500 that automatically renews and grows each year as long as you remain enrolled full-time, meet the hours completed requirement and are in good academic standing (2.0 GPA). That could mean up to $30,500 toward your education over four years!
