MU Chancellor Alexander Cartwright announced plans on Tuesday to double research funding while expanding research and creative activities that impact Missouri, the U.S. and rest of the world.
“MU faculty are shaping views on politics and society,” Cartwright said. “They enrich our lives through arts and humanities. They develop solutions to the world’s great challenges in food, water, health and others, and they engage our community both on and off campus. This significant impact is creating a better future for citizens of our state, nation and the world.”
