Mizzou Advantage fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty, staff, students and external partners to address and solve real-world needs and problems in four areas of strength identified at the University of Missouri:

  • Food for the Future: The culture, economics and production of healthy, affordable food
  • Media of the Future: New ways to communicate, educate and market
  • One Health/One Medicine: The convergence of animal and human health
  • Sustainable Energy: Developing and distributing renewable energy sources

With a wide array of expertise and resources all located on the same campus, MU does things no other university can.  By focusing on real-world problems, our collaborative networks secure external funding, recruit top students, attract prominent scholars and scientists, create jobs, and improve quality of life.

An educational component within each of the four areas develops and nurtures student-driven programs and gives University of Missouri students a competitive edge in today’s global marketplace.
