Centers for Research and Service

Missouri State University has established focused research and service centers that provide part of the organizational structure for meeting the University mission.

“Center” is a descriptor for formally recognized units, including institutes, bureaus and stations that function as an adjunct to the traditional University units (i.e., colleges and/ or academic departments). The support base for Centers is primarily from external sources, including grants, contracts, and fees (for services, workshops, conferences, etc.). These centers are active in multi-disciplinary research, education, training and service projects that serve both the University and external entities. Each year a number of students are involved in the research and service projects that are conducted through Centers. Visit the University's Research website for more information.
