Founded in 1839 as the first public university west of the Mississippi River, the University of Missouri is two universities in one: A major land-grant institution with a statewide mission of service to citizens, and Missouri’s largest public research university. Mizzou is one of only 40 public universities selected for membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities and is one of only six universities in the country with schools or colleges of medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture, engineering, law, and a research reactor all on one campus. Mizzou offers more than 350 degree and certificate programs (more than 100 available online). Over 30,000 students represent every state in the nation and over 100 countries.
