Missouri State Journal

Tuesday, 9:30 a.m.

The Missouri State Journal is a weekly program keeping you in touch with Missouri State University.

Missouri State University is a community within the community, and there is so much going on at any given time.

The university offers innumerable opportunities for Springfieldians to visit, but the Missouri State Foundation saw a need to showcase programs, volunteer opportunities and research to those both on and off campus.

Stephanie Smith, senior director of donor relations and special events, shares about Bears in the Know.

Visit Missouri State Foundation or call 417-836-4143 to purchase tickets.

Most are familiar with terms like Latino or Hispanic, but what does it mean to be Latinx? Yvania Garcia-Pusateri, executive director of multicultural programs at Missouri State University, is here to explain and to welcome everyone to celebrate September as Latinx Heritage Month.

Garcia-Pusateri, who was new to her position this time last year, notes that the programming will be amplified due to more time to plan and execute.

Schedule of events

The public affairs mission at Missouri State University sets it apart from other universities. It guides the way the university prepares students to become global citizens.

To spread awareness about this mission among students and the larger community, the office of public affairs support organizes several annual events.

There is a new leader at the helm of Missouri State University's College of Arts and Letters (COAL).

Dr. Shawn Wahl, former department head of communication, took charge of COAL as interim dean on July 1, 2017, after Dean Dr. Gloria Galanes retired. 

Aug. 21, 2017 – this is the day when the skies across North America will darken in the afternoon as the moon passes between the Earth and the sun.

This Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States in 38 years.
