College Experience at Missouri State 

The Missouri State University College of Education invites students to participate in a program for your freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Missouri State’s new Bear Partnership program encourages students to attend a week-long immersion program on the Springfield campus that will expose them to some of the opportunities they can expect from their college experience. It will be taking place this summer from June 7th - June 12th 2020.

Students will experience our campus and prepare themselves for college life by participating in ACT preparation sessions, attending workshops on different aspects of campus life, experiencing residence hall living, delving into various education careers, and exploring Springfield by attending local attractions. All of these activities are designed to familiarize your students with the college experience and give them the opportunity to start planning for college and their careers.  And – it is totally FREE!

Missouri is facing teaching shortages in all teaching fields.  We hope you will encourage your students to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and let us show them why we believe we are the best university, College of Education and teacher preparation institution in the state of Missouri!
