A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Missouri State University is a public, comprehensive university system with a mission in public affairs. Our purpose is to develop fully educated persons with a focus on ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement. The main campus is located in Springfield, Missouri. At this time, we are not including our three smaller campuses in STARS application. These facilities function under their own budgets and local leadership. We are currently reviewing the opportunity to include the West Plains and Mountain Grove campuses in the next STARS application.

Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school Yes Yes
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs or clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Museum No No
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres Yes No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres Yes No
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

The Missouri State University system has four physical campuses:
(1) The main campus in Springfield, MO
(2) West Plains, MO., offering two-year associate’s degrees
(3) Mountain Grove, MO., focusing on fruit science and agriculture research
(4) Dalian, China, in partnership with Liaoning Normal University.

Like the past AASHE STARS reports, this report only evaluates the main campus in Springfield. The West Plains campus is only a two-year associates facility. The Mountain Grove location is agricultural research only, and the China location is a partnership.

Additional documentation to support the submission :

We are also including a conservation and wildlife research property in this application. This is approximately 2400 acres. This acreage is not included in the main campus acreage reported in Pre-4.
