Campaign Cabinet

Comprising more than 40 Mizzou alumni and friends from across the nation, the Campaign Cabinet is responsible for the oversight and direction of the Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign. The Cabinet features representatives from every school, college and unit at MU. Cabinet tri-chairs are:

  • Catherine Allen 
  • José Gutiérrez
  • Richard Miller

Twice each year, the Cabinet convenes on campus to hear from university leadership and discuss such topics as:

  1. Fundraising goals and progress
  2. Campaign messaging
  3. Donor engagement and recognition
  4. Campus issues
  5. Legislative updates 

During the quiet phase of the campaign, the Campaign Cabinet contributed nearly $100 million toward the campaign's $1.3 billion goal. The University of Missouri sincerely appreciates the Campaign Cabinet's vision and generosity.
