Mizzou Athletics Training Complex - Total Person Program
The University of Missouri Athletic Department is committed to the success of student-athletes both on and off the field. Since 1986, Missouri has had the Total Person Program in place, which focuses on the total development of the student-athlete. The program has been so successful that other universities have created similar programs, using Mizzou as a model.
There are several services that are offered as part of the program, including academic counseling and assistance, academic progress monitoring, and substance abuse and psychological counseling.
The program focuses heavily on the freshman year in order to provide student-athletes with greater opportunity for academic success. To further enrich the freshman experience, the Total Person Program teaches a series of classes that focus on time management skills, textbook reading, course organization, note-taking, instructor relations, writing papers, memory and life skills.
The Shelden Academic Resource Center is a state-of-the-art 11,000 square feet complex located within the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex which gives MU student-athletes everything they need to train and grow as students and also as young men and women.
The Shelden Academic Resource Center includes a 50-workstation computer lab, more than 20 group and individual tutor rooms, staff offices and meeting rooms, as well as a large study area, giving Tiger student-athletes virtually every resource they need to be successful in the classroom.
The success is quite evident; as Missouri led its conference in graduation rates numerous times in the recent past. Additionally, Tiger student-athletes recorded the highest-ever grade point averages in school history during the 2012-13 academic year.
Forty-three Tiger football student-athletes earned a 3.0 or better in the fall 2012 semester. Overall, Mizzou ranked 2nd in the Southeastern Conference in Academic Progress Rate (APR).
