Undergraduate Success* Program

The US* Program is among the premier programs on campus for students who are serious about their academic and leadership accomplishments as members of the MU community. The program is designed to provide participants with the guidance, tools, and on-going development to ensure intellectual and individual success while enrolled at Mizzou. Participants will receive mentorship, training, and materials as they undertake the sequence of programming, and by building a network of contacts and knowledge, will learn how to navigate the world of the academic community and prepare for post-graduate studies or employment.

The approaches used are drawn from high-impact and research-proven practices. We begin with the values framework of respect, responsibility, discovery, and excellence, and take you through an interactive dialogue with fellow students and peer Ambassadors. We then help you plan and process your experiences to maximize their positive impact on out- comes. As a participant in the program, you will be expected to lead as often as you may be asked to follow, so that the program becomes, over time, more individualized to meet your needs as it pertains to:

  • Interacting with each other and the Mizzou community
  • Growing as a young professional and sharpening your communication skills
  • Formation of goals and how to work toward them
  • Planning for what happens after college to help you transition into the workplace or graduate school
