The University of Missouri Board of Curators approved a 5% tuition increase for undergraduates at all four universities. However, even with the increase, which amounts to between $14.20 and $17.30 per credit hour, tuition at UM institutions remains lower than institutions in surrounding states.
In other actions, the board approved the precision health construction project that will build a blended research and innovation facility on the southeast corner of the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. It will serve as the hub of a statewide initiative involving all four universities. The project will focus on discovering new treatments for illnesses such as cancer, stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Get more details on the UM System website.
