In the health and athletics world, the word train means to practice in order to improve. But in the world of Special Olympics athletes, it means so much more, thanks to a group of students and faculty from Missouri State University. This interdisciplinary group from kinesiology, special education, dietetics, graphic design and computer science developed TRAIN, Testing Recreation Activities and Improving Nutrition, in 2009 and 2010.
Look deeper into research and scholarly activities.
Research is an essential contribution by the University, and Missouri State encourages and facilitates research for three primary reasons:
Contributes to the public good
Both applied and basic research have the potential to enhance the quality of life for all.
Encourages faculty development
Research keeps faculty current in the issues and methods driving their respective disciplines.
Enhances the educational process
Research ensures "cutting edge" professors engage students and promote academic skills.
