University of Missouri System

The University of Missouri System is Missouir's state university system providing centralized administration for four universities, a health care system, an extension program, five research and technology parks, and a publishing press. More than 64,000 students are currently enrolled at its four campuses.[2]Headquartered in Columbia, Missouri on the original campus, the extension program provides distance learning and other educational initiatives statewide.[3] The UM System was created in 1963 when the University of Missouri and its offshoot, the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy, were combined with the formerly-private University of Kansas City and a newly-created campus in suburban St. Louis.
