Division of University Advancement




The goal of University Advancement is to support Missouri Southern State University. 

This involves the establishment of an integrated program of fundraising, constituent relations, marketing and communication efforts to enhance the perception and visibility of the university.

University Advancement is dedicated to creating deep and long-term relationships with MSSU alumni, stakeholders and partners.

The Missouri Southern Foundation, as a part of Advancement, strives to enrich MSSU’s future by securing private philanthropic support to spur ongoing success and pride in the students, faculty and staff we serve and the world in which we live.
