University of Missouri St. Louis


Our Commitment to Missouri and to the World

UMSL serves as a proud anchor institution in north St. Louis County. This role demands that we position ourselves not only as good neighbors but as active partners in the development of education, health care, public safety, social service, business and industry initiatives that strengthen our communities, our city and our state.

We share the belief that no accomplishment will be more critical to these endeavors than improving educational opportunity for all. As a result, we have partnered with the chamber of commerce to become a powerful force in the St. Louis Regional Education Commitment. We are committed to doing our part to increase the number of adults in St. Louis who hold a bachelor’s degree to 40 percent by the year 2025. The direct result of this effort will be a more educated, empowered workforce – one that will continue to make St. Louis an exemplary, desirable place for corporations, technology startups and other industry innovators who have the power to bring growth, opportunity and lasting stability to our region.

As one of the largest, most culturally and ethnically diverse universities in Missouri, we believe no institution is better suited to assist with this goal than UMSL.

Finally, though we are proudly St. Louis, we also know that our impact reaches far beyond our immediate surroundings. The reach of our programs and partnerships spans the globe, most importantly through the influence of our graduates. Our alumni are business leaders, health-care professionals, educators and scientists who have found work in nearly every state and multiple countries. Their accomplishments inspire our collective efforts to create solutions and positively impact society.

From our own backyard to the broader world, we are committed to building a future in which our greatest outcome is transformative change for all.
