Career Center

The mission of the Career Center is to provide professional assistance and intervention to Missouri State students and alumni through the use of career counseling, internship and full-time job searches, and vocational and educational information, for they may make insightful career decisions.

Disability Resource Center

In conjunction with the Community Principles and overall mission of Missouri State University, the Disability Resource Center appreciates disability as an integral part of the university experience. We are committed to providing equal access and opportunity to all campus programs and services for persons with disabilities. Through collaboration and support of the entire campus community, the Disability Resource Center promotes disability pride, self-determination of the student, and universally accessible design principles, so that everyone has full access to University life.

Fellowships

The Fellowships Office was created to help Missouri State University students become aware of and submit applications for the national and international fellowships, scholarships, and grants available to them for graduate studies.  The main role of the Fellowships Office is to coordinate the efforts of faculty and administrators in order to help students be successful in their applications for these prestigious fellowships.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. Attendance at sessions is voluntary. For you the student, it’s a chance to get together with people in your class to compare notes, to discuss important concepts, to develop strategies for studying the subject, and to test yourselves before your professor does, so that when he/she does, you’ll be ready. At each session you will be guided through this material by your SI leader, a competent student who has previously taken the course.

Writing Center

The Writing Center is a welcoming place for you to gain advice on any writing assignment regardless of the course or topic. Whether you are just beginning an assignment or are in the final stages of a project, we can help! Undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty use this free academic support service to workshop papers for their academic courses, creative writing, speeches, presentations, course syllabi, and articles intended for publication.
