With the new fiscal year that began on July 1, several organizational transitions are underway as part of Missouri S&T’s budget plan. These changes include a change in direct reports to the chancellor and a reduction in the number of direct reports to the provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs.

These changes have been vetted widely with many constituents. They include some of the feedback received during the many open sessions on campus and have been approved by University of Missouri System President Mun Choi. Unless otherwise stipulated, the fundamental mission and goals of the affected units will remain the same after scheduled transitions.
In addition, the Division of Finance and Administration has been renamed Finance and Operations.
