About Missouri State University’s Public Affairs mission: On June 15, 1995, Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan signed into law Senate Bill 340 which gave Missouri State University a statewide mission in public affairs. This mission defines a primary way in which a Missouri State education is different from that of other universities and one way by which we educate our students to imagine the future. The three broad themes of the public affairs mission are explored through cultural competence, community engagement, and ethical leadership. Visit the MSU Public Affairs website to learn more about our mission and activities associate with the mission.
