As of 1995, Missouri had the fifteenth largest system of
higher education in the United States, with an array of
postsecondary schools, colleges and universities in both
rural and urban settings. The University of Missouri
system, with campuses in Columbia, Kansas City, Rolla
and St Louis, is a public doctoral degree-granting
research university. The nine other public four-year
colleges and universities include both baccalaureate and
master's-level institutions. The state's 17 public
two-year community colleges and 1 public two-year
technical college work with area vocational technical
schools and four-year institutions to provide a
state-wide system of technical education and training.
Among Missouri's 26 independent colleges and
universities are three doctoral universities: Saint
Louis University, Washington University and Webster
University. Scattered geographically throughout the
state, the 23 other independent colleges and
universities are as diverse as their locales, from
Cottey College (a two-year women's college sponsored by
the P.E.O. Sisterhood) to Southwest Baptist University
(a senior liberal arts university affiliated with the
Baptist church). More than 120 proprietary schools and a
number of theological and technical/professional schools
present even more educational opportunities.
Collectively, these institutions enrol more than 325,000
students, nearly 8,000 (2.7%) of which are international
students originating from countries such as Australia,
Germany, the United Kingdom, Korea, Mexico and India.
The many colleges and universities in Missouri strive to
make international students feel welcome on their
campuses, and foster international education through
international student clubs, special events and exchange
programs. In fact, two institutions - Missouri Southern
State College and Webster University - have missions
focusing on international education.
Missouri colleges and universities offer academic
programs ranging from diplomas and certificates in
hotel/restaurant management to baccalaureate and
master's degree programs in computer science and
international business administration, to doctoral and
professional programs in medicine and international law.
From our nationally recognised engineering school at the
University of Missouri-Rolla to the sophisticated
medical research at Washington University, Westminster
College, and William Jewell College are acclaimed for
their quality and low cost. Both Northwest Missouri
State University and the University of Missouri-Rolla
have won the Missouri Quality Award in recent years. Two
students, from the University of Missouri-Columbia and
Saint Louis University, were named 1999 Rhodes scholars.
These are just a few examples of the recognition
Missouri colleges, universities and students have
received for their quality education.
Nearly every Missouri college and university is linked
to the World Wide Web, and some deliver courses or
complete degree programs via the Internet. More than 40
colleges and universities have agreed to combine their
academic libraries, allowing electronic access to a
collection of more than 13 million library volumes.
Brad Pitt (actor), Sheryl Crow (singer), Paula Zahn (CBS
News), Frederick Robbins (Nobel Prize winner), Sam
Walton (Wal-Mart founder), Walt Disney (Disney theme
parks founder), Linda Godwin (NASA astronaut), and
Tennessee Williams (playwright) are among the
distinguished people who have attended college in
