Campaign Mission and Vision
Driven by a mission of public service and educational opportunity, Murray State aspires to a bold vision:
We seek to become a national model for value and quality
in higher education, providing a growing number of students with access to an excellent university
experience, no matter their financial means.
Growing in Excellence
At Murray State, we believe that our students deserve the chance not only to earn a college degree,
but to take advantage of the full range of transforming experiences a great university education
offers—from working closely with top faculty, to studying abroad, to conducting undergraduate
research. We seek both to expand the enriching opportunities we offer and to increase the number
of students who can take part.
Our University has consistently held tuition below the level of our peers and earned recognition from the national media as a “Best Value” and a “Great School at a Great Price.” We are determined to continue offering superior academic quality and one of the lowest costs among pubic universities, while at the same time expanding financial aid for those families who need it.
Murray State prepares its students for lives of achievement and fulfillment. Whether their dreams take them to destinations close to home or halfway around the world, we are committed to providing them with the education they need to succeed—a commitment reflected in the proud stories told by generations of past graduates.
