Quote from the President

“The key to serving our region (community) is outreach. We’ve been aggressively developing partnerships throughout Southeast Missouri to fill the need for flexible, effective, open-access, open-admission higher education. We’re not just about giving students a piece of paper; we’re focusing on improving the quality of life and providing promise and hope. Our goal is to build futures, not just issue degrees.”
