Our mission is student success at Missouri State University.

Our goal is to ensure that students are retained, thrive and graduate from the University. This is done through the coordination of activities and delivery of student services focusing on academic support beginning with student transition into the university and persistence through graduation.

In short, we deliver programs that support student retention and completion while serving as a resource for the campus community.
