TigerView is a signature campus visitation initiative hosted by the Center for Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Education (CIE). A play of words with Truman the Tiger (our mascot) and a preview of what MU has to offer brings us TigerView; and our goal is to explore the match between prospective students and us while at the same time preparing them to apply to graduate school in general. TigerView is held every fall semester. Contact the Director of CIE for more information about the program: Dr. Raquel A. Arouca (MUGradCIE@missouri.edu).
TigerView 2023 will take place on Sep 25, 2023 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. via Zoom, and an on-campus visit on October 2, 2023.
Applications are open. Scroll down for more information on 2023 program.
Greetings from the Director
Let’s meet! The goal of TigerView is to open up your eyes to the opportunities you will find at the University of Missouri. We seek some of the best and brightest prospective students interested in embarking on a journey of discovery and growth through an MU graduate degree program. The best way to accomplish that is to host you on campus!
With over 145 graduate degree programs, more than 60 graduate student organizations, and over 70 research, centers, institutes, and core facilities to support your graduate education, we have several options for your academic training. We also promote students’ growth through professional development series, gradESSENTIALS, and personal support through the Center for Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Education.
Our faculty is committed to supporting diverse ideas and perspectives and disciplinary and interdisciplinary work. Besides, our campus community does not shy away from challenges and change. Our graduate students are involved in teaching, research, service, community engagement, and professional development. We hope that you will be one of those students.
TigerView provides you with two days of learning and exploration. It is an opportunity for us to know more about you and for you to know more about Mizzou. I believe that is the only way to make an informed decision about your graduate education.
I look forward to meeting you in the Fall!
Raquel A. Arouca
TigerView is more than a visit; it is preparation for your graduate school application.
What TigerView Can Do for You
The program prepares you to apply to any graduate school and to explore all that Mizzou has to offer. During the visit, you will:
- Receive information about the opportunities for research and academic growth available to students at MU, a leading research university;
- Have opportunities to network with current faculty, administrators, graduate students, and staff in your program of interest;
- Participate in workshops about different aspects of the graduate school application process (e.g., the admissions process, funding sources, personal statement, and more);
- Enjoy walking around campus, dining at different local restaurants, and having a private visit with your program of interest.
The Graduate School pays all costs associated with official events of the visit (i.e., travel, lodging, tours, and meals in Columbia). Participation in the program does not guarantee acceptance into the graduate degree program in which one is interested.
Application Deadline: Priority deadline July 24. Final Deadline 11:59 PM (Central Time), July 31.
The program seeks applications from U.S. citizens or permanent residents attending or who have graduated from a U.S. college or university.
Program space is limited; the focus is on applicants:
- with an expected graduation date before or by May or Summer 2024;
- or who have earned their bachelor’s or master’s degrees;
- and who will contribute to diverse perspectives and ideas to the Mizzou community.
Further times will be added. You can also request a session by emailing MUGradCIE@missouri.edu.
