Central Missouri Tomorrow

Central Missouri Tomorrow


Chuck Ambrose, Host
Chuck Ambrose assumed the presidency of the University of Central Missouri in 2010, bringing to the post a commitment to service learning and a focus on student success and community involvement.

During his first year at UCM, he has led, along with leadership from a cross-section of the campus community, a successful academic and administrative reorganization in response to the current economic climate for higher education. The result is increased efficiency in the use of available resources, while continuing to improve the overall college experience of the UCM student.

A strong advocate of servant leadership, Ambrose and his wife, Kris, a former golf professional, put a national spotlight on breast cancer research with the Ride for the Ribbon. The 1,000-mile bike ride and campaign raised awareness and more than $200,000 for breast cancer research and education.
