White House Education Summit

Highlights Program at MU

COLUMBIA, Mo. – President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted officials from more than 100 universities, colleges and nonprofit groups at the White House today for a higher education summit. The University of Missouri was selected by the president to participate based on the university’s commitment to helping low-income students attend and succeed at college. Deputy Chancellor Mike Middleton represented MU at the summit.

“It’s an honor to attend this education summit and represent MU at the national gathering,” Middleton said. “We are excited about the numerous programs at MU that help low-income and underrepresented students throughout the state realize their potential to obtain a college education and go on to be successful in their lifetimes.”

The Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC), a program designed to help students during the college application process, was highlighted at the summit.
