The Gateway to the West - immortalized by the St. Louis Gateway Arch - Missouri has an exceptionally American personality. The crossroads of the Mississippi River and the westward migration, Missouri came to embody everything that made America, America during its adolescence, and put its own stamp on everything from barbecue to jazz. St. Louis and Kansas City, major transportation centers, helped make Missouri a hub for industry, while agriculture and mining paved the way for everything from biotechnology to engineering. Innovation and entrepreneurship are imprinted in Missouri's higher education, from its acclaimed Christian liberal arts colleges to the public research giants, the University of Missouri and Missouri State University. Mark Twain may not have seen it coming, but Missouri is not just the Gateway to the West; it may be the Gateway to the Future.
As Managing Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris notes, "When Americans pushed the frontier beyond the Mississippi River and into the West [...] Missouri was the door." The Missourian character is like no other in America, because it's a little of all America. "Slow to trust - it's not called the 'Show Me' State for nothing," Sealey-Morris writes, "but fearless and experimental, Missourians find what works, fix what doesn't, and make their lives better": and that spirit, as Sealey-Morris observes, "is cemented in the state's higher education." As Sealey-Morris explains, "Missouri is a big state, and a strong network of public regional universities, including Northwest Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State, and Missouri State University, provides affordable and quality career and professional education," giving traditional students and working adults opportunity. Meanwhile, "the University of Missouri has been preparing Missouri's leaders and scholars longer than any other public university in the West."
