The UM System president and the president of Jefferson City’s Lincoln University will work closely together to establish new partnerships.
UM System President Dr. Mun Choi made the announcement during the governor’s Friday education roundtable at Mizzou.
“It’s such an important partnership for us because of the access opportunity and completion aspect of student success. And Dr. Mosely is so committed to the students and the community that he serves as president of Lincoln University,” Dr. Choi says.
Lincoln President Dr. John Moseley attended the roundtable as well, and echoed Dr. Choi’s remarks. President Choi predicts big things.
“And the fact that we’re the only land-grant institutions in the state, it only makes sense for us to partner. And we’re going to be joined at the hips, we’re going to do a lot of great things together,” Dr. Choi tells 939 the Eagle.
Dr. Choi is also calling for closer partnerships with both the Columbia Area Career Center (CACC) and Moberly Area Community College. CACC is part of Columbia Public Schools (CPS).
