Athletics is the Window Through Which the Univeristy is Often Viewed:
Athletic competition and athletic success are important to the University of Missouri. Financial stability in athletics ultimately breeds success and success breeds pride among our many alumni and friends. Studies have shown that winning – more importantly, winning the “right way” (in compliance with NCAA rules and with great team effort) – can be a tremendous recruiting tool for the general student population as well as for potential student-athletes. In addition, athletic accomplishments often provide an invaluable public relations “advertisement” for Mizzou while also serving as a catalyst for philanthropy to all areas of the University.
Self-Supporting Athletics Department
The University of Missouri does not receive institutional support for operational and debt service funding toward our intercollegiate athletics program. Thus, similar to private businesses, the Mizzou Athletic Department must operate solely from what revenue it generates.
