A Ballot Initiative to Seek the Student Body's Opinion on Off-Campus Dining

MSA leaders and Campus Dining Services are seeking to assess student interest in the creation of a prospective off-campus dining plan or a change to current dining plans to include off-campus establishments.


After conversations with CDS leadership and within MSA Senate Committees, the Senate has passed Senate Bill 63-44 to add a question regarding off-campus dining options to the Spring Ballot!

A Ballot Initiative On the Continuation of the Mizzou Student Media Fee

Mizzou Student Media (MSM) is an organization consisting of MU’s student-led radio station, newspaper, and podcast network: KCOU 88.1 FM, The Maneater, and the MSM Podcast Network. Those media entities are operated and led completely by MU students, producing content that is editorially independent of the University and that covers diverse campus issues and topics for the students of MU. MSM is open to all students and provides hands-on learning and leadership opportunities for its staff members in media careers, including news reporting, writing, editing, and producing; news, music and sports radio hosting, DJing, and production; podcast development and production; and social media, newsletter, and digital marketing.


The Mizzou Student Media Fee has reached its expiration after its approval in 2020 and must come before the student body for a renewal vote, including an initiative to adopt the fee as permanent, similar to the ASUM Fee and the Sustainability Fee. MSA Senate has voted to add two ballot questions regarding the MSM Student Fee.

MSA Executive Slates

Each year, interested students are able to file for a slate to run in the MSA Spring Election consisting of a Presidential candidate, a Vice-Presidential candidate, and a campaign manager. Slates must obtain 500 unique student signatures before they are verified and allowed to campaign.


The MSA President and Vice-President act as the top leaders of the MU undergraduate student body. They garner student feedback and translate it into conversations with Mizzou administration and campus projects.


Slates can campaign from February 19th through the close of the ballot on March 7th. Learn more about this year’s slates below!

MSA Senatorial Candidates

The Senate is comprised of 80 total seats, with 50 reserved for Academic Senators. Within those 50, seats are allocated based on the proportion of each academic college’s annual enrollment. Each semester, students are able to apply to fill any empty seats for their academic college.


Academic Senators will write and pass legislation, interact directly with administrators, be a voice for their peers in their academic college, and help advocate to improve the student experience. Academic Senator terms are held for a year, during which Senators play a crucial role in the student Senate.
