The University of Missouri's dedication to stewardship at the educational, environmental and fiscal levels originates from its mission of teaching, research, public service and economic development. All planning efforts at Mizzou further support these goals.
MU's master planning process began more than 30 years ago with a devotion to its historic buildings when planning for the future. A commitment to practical renovation and repurposing strategies supports the institution's values and incorporates a practice of fiscal and environmental responsibility.
Mizzou has broadened its role as a steward of the environment by becoming a leader in compact development, and by establishing policies such as a storm water master plan in conjunction with the City of Columbia and Boone County (our local government stakeholders).
As a public, land-grant university, we consider all citizens of Missouri as our stakeholders. Information about statewide impacts and engagement can be found here: http://www.umsystem.edu/about-us
We send a list of proposed capital improvements to the state legislature periodically to evaluate if they will choose to allocate and distribute funds to those capital improvement projects. Any project with design fees over $500,000 or construction fees over $5 million must go to the Board of Curators for approval.
MU Vice Chancellor of Operations and C.O.O. Gary Ward meet monthly with the City of Columbia's Public Works Director, John Glascock and his direct reports to discuss upcoming projects that could impact either party.

There was City, County, and MU collaboration to study and implement BMPs to improve water quality and aquatic habitat in the Hinkson Creek Watershed. Several monitoring sites were set up and the data collected support research projects and are used to inform public policy.
