CNAS Mission
  • The mission of the College of Natural and Applied
    Sciences (CNAS) at Missouri State University is
    to produce educated persons who, upon graduation,
    are prepared to make sound decisions relative to
    science and society.   Central to this effort is
    the Colleges commitment to develop students
    capacities for lifelong learning in an
    increasingly technological world.

Teaching Mission
  • The College is committed to excellence in
    teaching. It supports experiential learning
    through internships, laboratory and field
    experiences, undergraduate and graduate research,
    cooperative education, and science education
    programs.
  • These learning experiences improve the students'
    qualitative and analytic abilities which are
    necessary for critical thinking and informed
    decision-making.  The College endeavors to
    instill in each student a foundation of knowledge
    and the ethics needed to function responsibly in
    society.

    problems
  • development of methodology to improve inquiry,
    teaching, and professional practice
  • educational opportunities for students
  • Academic units and research centers on both the
    Springfield Campus and the Mountain Grove campus)
    engage in fundamental and applied research and
    service.  The disciplines which make up the
    College provide a unique opportunity for an
    interdisciplinary approach to research and
    graduate education.
