The Missouri Department of Higher Education and the Missouri Community College Association were chosen to start a competency-based education jump-start program that is meant to increase college completion rates. According to KOMU, the program allows students to progress as they demonstrate mastery of the academic material – no matter the pace of learning. Dr. Terry Smith, interim president, was interviewed about the program and how it will help Missouri students.
