MU launches the Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign with help from celebrity alumni
Celebrity alumni including singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow, BS Ed ’84, and 1990 Miss America Debbye Turner Bell, DVM ’91, as well as current Mizzou wrestler J’Den Cox, helped kick off Mizzou’s new comprehensive funding campaign, Mizzou: Our Time to Lead, at Mizzou Arena Thursday night.
The campaign seeks to raise $1.3 billion to support and advance education and research goals. Priorities include increasing the endowment for programs, scholarships and research; supporting and developing new signature centers and institutes; and renovating and constructing campus buildings. Reaching the goal can help elevate Mizzou’s status in the Association of American Universities (AAU) and increase the university’s capacity for education, research, and student and faculty recruitment.
