Our Mission

The MHPC programs align exceptionally well with the “service region” mission of each of the participating Consortium colleges and the over-all “Land Grant” mission of the University of Missouri, in following ways:

Our Purpose

There are four (4) main goals for the Consortium-based cooperative degree completion programs:
To expand the supply of healthcare professionals who will choose to live and work near their current homes
To establish mutually accepted baseline enrollment, retention, graduation and alumni/employer satisfaction rates

To expand the cooperative relationships between the clinical health employers and professionals, local community colleges, and the University of Missouri in Columbia
To enhance public/private partnerships that contribute to increased accessibility to higher education between the Missouri community colleges and the University of Missouri in Columbia
