Interdisciplinary collaboration is a Mizzou hallmark. With a wide array of expertise located on the same campus, including schools and colleges of agriculture, arts and science, business, engineering, journalism, law, medicine and veterinary medicine, Mizzou is an ideal environment for making connections across fields of study to foster learning and discovery that will make a real-world impact.

By combining donor passions with Mizzou’s strengths, our signature centers and institutes pull the very best of MU together and provide the framework for interdisciplinary collaboration. Our signature centers and institutes include:

We have several more centers and institutes on the horizon, such as the Center for Regenerative Orthopaedics at the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Applied Learning Center at the Trulaske College of Business. We envision 5-10 centers or institutes with endowments of at least $10 million each as indicators of the Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign’s success.

These centers and institutes will be the engines of growth that will bolster our standing within the prestigious Association of American Universities and significantly increase our endowment.
