The Missouri Promise would help graduating high school seniors pay for tuition at colleges and universities. Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel created the Missouri Promise. It would benefit students graduating high school with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

The board met Thursday and Friday to discuss budgets, growth objectives across the four campuses, and closed the meetings with the discussion on the Missouri Promise.

"If you look at, for example, a year ago, of the approximately 28,000 Missouri high school seniors graduating in the state who had a 3.0 or better, about 40 to 45 percent don't end up going to college in the state of Missouri. That's a huge missed opportunity for the state," UM system spokesperson John Fougere said. Read more about the Promise at
