Faculty & Staff
The Mizzou Advantage initiative provides fiscal, networking and other support to MU faculty and staff through numerous channels.
Research. Through periodic calls for proposals, the initiative funds interdisciplinary research projects expected to result in scholarly publications and additional extramural funding. Limited discretionary funds are also available for small requests (less than $5,000). Contact a Mizzou Advantage Faculty Facilitator for more information.
High Impact Conference Grants. Limited funds now available to support high impact conferences in one or more Mizzou Advantage areas including Food for the Future, One Health/One Medicine, Sustainable Energy, and Media of the Future. Applications accepted on an ongoing basis until funds have been expended.
Targeted Communications. Use the Mizzou Advantage Communicate-On-Demand tool to quickly and easily create digital or print publications about MU’s assets, research expertise, and personnel. Compile professional marketing pieces including single pages, booklets, PowerPoint slides, print ads, and video mailers. This intuitive tool is free to the MU community.
Conferences/Speakers. Fiscal and logistical support is available for high-impact conferences, as well as for bringing prominent speakers to campus. For more information, contact a Mizzou Advantage Faculty Facilitator for more information.
Educational initiatives. Networking opportunities and fiscal resources support the creation of new educational programs (courses, curricula, certificates, and majors) for undergraduates and graduate students. Contact the Mizzou Advantage Education Facilitator for more information.
