Our Campus and Our Community

MU’s Veterinary Health Center is a state-of-the-art teaching and medical services facility for
companion animals as well as livestock.   Columbia, MO is an ideal location for such a teaching
hospital with a robust small animal case load. Missouri is a strong agricultural state with large
numbers of horses, cattle, hogs, and poultry.

MU is a nationally competitive, global university.  Many states fund separate research and land-
grant universities, but Missouri combines those roles at its flagship institution. MU is both a
land-grant university with a statewide mission of service to citizens and Missouri’s largest public research university.  Mizzou is one of only five universities nationwide that offers law, medicine,
veterinary medicine, and a nuclear research reactor on one campus.
