Missouri State University’s public affairs mission focuses on how to lead ethically, contribute to community and respect multiple perspectives and cultures.  How do members of the Springfield/Greene County area and Missouri State University collaborate to move from words to deeds for community success? How can students, and community members alike, utilize the public affairs mission to help find and maintain their passion for meaningful causes? In what ways can MSU Citizen Bears, in college and beyond, utilize their resources and time for a positive impact in their communities?
