EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM Now more than ever, direct lines of emergency communication are vital to maintaining a safe, secure learning environment for university students.The Emergency Alert System is integrated into the teaching and research technologies available on the Missouri S&T campus. Students, faculty and staff automatically receive email alerts and can register to receive voicemail or text message alerts should a campus emergency occur.
The Carnegie Classification's were created "to reference the great diversity of colleges and universities in the United States, and ... enable [people] to identify groups of roughly comparable institutions."

Students who are actively involved in their own learning and development are more likely to be successful in college. Colleges and universities offer students a wide variety of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to become engaged with new ideas, people, and experiences. Institutions measure the effectiveness of these opportunities in a variety of ways to better understand what types of activities and programs students find the most helpful.
Institutions participating in the VSA program measure student involvement on campus using one of four national surveys. Results from the one survey are reported for a common set of questions selected as part of VSA. Following are the selected results from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The questions have been grouped together in categories that are known to contribute to student learning and development. The results reported below are based on the responses of seniors who participated in the survey.
