MU’s longstanding culture of collaboration encourages faculty to partner with like-minded researchers from other fields. The Mizzou Advantage initiative builds on this rich history in four deep-seated areas of strength:
- 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: health solutions and the convergence of human/animal medicine
- Sustainable Energy: sustainable energy development, distribution and education
MU is an AAU institution with world-renowned research centers, scholars and infrastructure in these four areas. It is one of a handful of universities with a medical school, a college of veterinary medicine, a law school, an engineering college and a college of agriculture—all on the same campus, all within walking distance.
As a model land-grant institution, Mizzou is committed to making university research broadly available. Scientists collaborate with corporate partners, government agencies, universities and other entities—locally, nationally and globally. These partnerships, coupled with MU’s profound expertise, create a formula for success.
