Jay Nixon visited the University of Central Missouri Tuesday, Aug. 25, and announced investments that will strengthen Missouri's position as a leader in higher education quality and affordability. In an outdoor press conference discussed improvements at UCM that were being made possible through Building Affordability, an initiative proposed by the Governor in collaboration with public colleges and universities and passed with bi-partisan support in the General Assembly this year.
