The University of Missouri, with the Columns at the heart of the “red campus” and the “white campus” anchored by Memorial Union, is a beautiful college setting. By combining private support with state money, we will honor Mizzou’s formidable architectural traditions while adapting to changing needs.

Support for capital projects and maintenance endowments are vital to the preservation of our important campus assets. The Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign will provide funding both for critically needed renovations and new construction.

While construction jobs are good for the local and regional economies, more important for Mizzou is how capital projects help attract stellar faculty and students. Recent examples of construction benefitting MU include the Reynolds Journalism Institute, the Bond Life Sciences Center, the renovation of Tate and Switzler Halls and the student-funded Student Center and Recreation Center.

Many schools and colleges will have capital projects as part of their strategic priorities for the Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign. Priority capital projects include:

  • School of Music Building
  • College of Engineering renovations (Lafferre Hall and Engineering Building West)
  • Fine Arts Building renovation
  • Patient-Centered Care Learning Center
  • Mizzou Sports Park

To care for our buildings is to respect our history. To erect new buildings signals growth and momentum. Visible investments in infrastructure make our campus come alive and prepare us for the vital work of the future.
