The Imperative

The Missouri Higher Education Partnership

Over the last several decades, state support for higher education has steadily declined as a percentage of the cost to educate students. This trend, while alarming to families, is especially troublesome to Missouri business leaders. As the state tries to compete in a global economy, grow jobs and attract and retain the best talent, state officials are, in effect, choking the very pipline for our success.

The Missouri Higher Education Partnership (MOHEP) is working to reverse this disturbing trend.

The members of MOHEP will advocate the importance and value of higher education, educate the grassroots and grasstops on the impact of higher education to their lives, communities and state, and support candidates and elected officials who are pro-higher education.
