The University of Missouri System Broadband initiative is a coordinated effort to encourage the statewide build-out of reliable high-speed internet (broadband) infrastructure and use of
broadband-based applications to improve the lives of Missourians around the state’s three grand challenges related to:
– Economic opportunity
– Educational access and excellence
– Health and well-being
The Broadband Initiative embodies the System’s mission as a land-grant educational institution. It involves faculty, researchers, staff and resources at all four System’s campuses — the University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Missouri University of Science and Technology and University of Missouri-St. Louis — and MU Extension faculty and specialists in all 114 counties and the City of St. Louis.
