Alumni and Community Resources

Sharing science with the community

Things change quickly in the world of science, and we are excited to work alongside our alumni and community members to spread interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. We offer several events per year to engage school-age children in riveting science experiments, and we get involved at their schools, too. It's never too late to learn something new, so our faculty also present free public lectures throughout the academic year that showcase their research and unique findings.

Continue the connection

We value our alumni! We want to hear about your personal and professional accomplishments because your success in the workplace reflects on the College of Natural and Applied Sciences at Missouri State. Also, alumni are a great resource for practicum and internship experiences, helping the next generation of our students. Please contact the office of your major department with updates about your personal and professional achievements so we can celebrate with you.
