Missouri S&T was chartered on Feb. 24, 1870, as the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy, and classes were called to order on Nov. 6, 1871.The first technological institution west of the Mississippi — and one of the first in the nation — the university was a product of the Morrill Act of 1862 and the land-grant movement of the late 19th century. In 2020-21, we will mark a 150-year legacy of discovery, creativity and innovation. Please join us as we honor the university's past, celebrate its present and envision its future.


Join members of the 150th Advisory Committee for an interactive open forum 1:30-3 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, in St. Pat’s Ballroom A of the Havener Center. All faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.
