A global perspective and a commitment to cultural competence are not only key elements in MSU’s long-range plan; students also play a critical role in daily decisions and actions. Colonel Stephen Robinette, Associate Vice-President, International Studies, Missouri State University while explaining about the situation said, “We have welcomed Indian students for over ten years and will continue to do so with the same zeal and enthusiasm.”
“Our campuses are patrolled 24/7 and there are support groups for students that require extra attention. In view of the recent unfortunate events, we have tightened our security even further. We have a zero tolerance policy for any sort of racism or discrimination. Our students can freely approach the International student services for any sort of support they may require.”, also added Col. Robinette.
MSU would soon be announcing its scholarships as well as cources specially designed for Indian students.
