What is Choose Red?
Red is much more than a color, and the University of Central Missouri is much more than a college. For nearly 150 years, students have chosen RED to learn, live and lead in Missouri, and around the world. The tradition of "Education for Service" has gone unchanged on our campus since its founding, and remains ingrained in our culture today.
Choose Red to shape the world of tomorrow. It starts with an idea and grows with the help of knowledgeable teachers who inspire you to pursue your passions. Our academic programs are focused on preparing you for the world of the future. Through hands-on, engaged learning, you will graduate UCM ready to tackle challenges that are not even identified today.
Choose Red to be a leader among followers. Great leadership is honed through experiencing different cultures and broadening your global perspective. We encourage students to discover the richness of cultural diversity through studying abroad in more than 60 countries worldwide.
The future is wide open for those who have the courage to seek it, test it, construct it and live it. When your future is on the line, when you want to make a difference, Choose Red.
