COLUMBIA- Campus leaders of the "One Mizzou" program held a campus-wide forum Thursday to discuss MU's strategic plan.

The forum announced updates on progress on what leaders called MU's "innovative living document." The plan in question outlines the three main goals MU has for creating the best educational environment.

First among those goals in to expand and strengthen programs that improve the lives of the citizens of Missouri, the nation and the world. Progress under this goal includes:

  • 87 percent of MU graduates who were employed found jobs related to their majors
  • 70 percent of MU graduates stay and work in Missouri
  • A partnership with Renmin University (China) to deliver master's degrees in financial planning to Chinese students
  • A 2011 class of first-time-college students including 535 African-American students and 222 Hispanic students
  • 81 undergraduate international students and 1,943 international graduate students

The strategic plan also calls for building the Mizzou Advantage, a set of five initiatives that capitalize on existing strengths and bring new international distinction to MU.  Progress under this goal includes:

  • Funding of five Mizzou Advantage projects that involve student research or other participation
  • "Reboot Mizzou," a program focused on promoting sustainability on MU's campus
  • Training at the Missouri Youth Development Academy for 811 professionals reaching a conservative estimate of 48,590 youth in 2011-10

Finally, to ensure that MU has resources necessary to support innovation in teaching, research, outreach and economic development.  Progress under this goal includes:

  • The "One Mizzou" concept embraced multiple manifestations on campus: a student-led diversity initiative, the campus strategic plan, the Joplin tornado relief and Intercollegiate Athletics theme.
  • Campus climate regularly surveyed
  • Mizzou Diversity website was launched in spring 2011
  • Delta Alpha Pi, a national honorary for students with disabilities was established at Mizzou

Leaders said the University encourages broad participation in its strategic plan by holding forums like this so that students and faculty can get involved in the work the university is doing.
