As a university, our focus is to provide students with a solid start in life by preparing them to be successful in a world of accelerated change. To successfully accomplish this, students must be given knowledge and experiences that broaden and deepen their education. The University of Central Missouri’s commitment to continuous learning allows students to find their own sense of purpose and equips them with the tools to make it a reality. The cornerstones of UCM are innovative academics, engaging programs, servant-leadership opportunities and global perspective. These building blocks allow students to flourish at UCM, and, most importantly, these elements prepare them for a life of continuous learning.
