Committed to engaging with the communities it serves, MU’s College of Arts and Science offers Beyond Campus, a series that showcases the range and relevance of the college’s research and programs, which serve as the foundation for all undergraduates at MU, whether they major in an A&S discipline or not. The events in this series are intended for the general public, including alumni, business and community leaders, and prospective students.

As an example, on March 5, 2019, Beyond Campus hosted “Data in Motion: How Sports Analytics Is Changing the Game” at Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City, MO. There were over 140 people in attendance.
