The MBU Annual fund makes a direct investment in the lives of students and faculty by supporting these key areas:
Missouri Baptist University offers one of the most affordable tuition rates of any Christian University in the region. MBU’s costs are reasonable because the University underwrites a significant portion of each student’s tuition each year. Currently, 92% of undergraduate students at MBU receive some form of scholarship assistance. The MBU Annual Fund supplements this amount helping to ensure deserving students have access to an outstanding Christian education.
MBU’s faculty are dedicated men and women of faith who are committed to providing excellent teaching and building meaningful relationships with the students in whom they serve. They are also top scholars in their fields. The MBU Annual Fund provides resources that help the University attract and retain faculty who build on MBU’s rich tradition of outstanding teaching as well as continuing spiritual and professional growth.
Technology is continually changing and new educational innovations emerge constantly. The MBU Annual Fund helps students gain access to the latest learning tools so they are well prepared for today’s technology driven world and have the knowledge to contribute in their chosen career and community.
Learning opportunities that expand beyond the classroom are critical to the integration of faith and learning. Students who are involved in leadership and service learning projects and athletics learn skills such as teamwork, perseverance and problem solving. Outreach programs including mission trips, student ministries, and fine arts programs prepare students to shine on as they serve others.
