Advancement through Giving

Reasons to Give to HES

Our mission touches the heart of humanity: to develop and nurture human potential, and to apply knowledge for the betterment of all.

Beginning with the basics — food, clothing, shelter, finances, family and community — we concentrate on providing scientific solutions for contemporary challenges in human lives.

Extending from deep land-grant roots, the College of Human Environmental Sciences is unique in Missouri because we offer a complete array of teaching, research and extension programs in the human sciences.
