The Varsity M Mission
The Varsity M Association is an affiliate program of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and an affinity group of the MU Alumni Association. The purpose of the Varsity M Association is to support current and former student athletes while carrying out its mission of academic and athletic excellence. The Association reunites former Mizzou varsity student athletes in the spirit of fellowship and cooperation for the proactive reason of supplementing the athletic department's effort to enhance the academic and athletic experience for current Tiger student athletes.
Membership in the Varsity M Association is limited to those persons who have earned a letter in varsity athletics or sports medicine while attending the University of Missouri, and who have paid the established membership dues of the MU Alumni Association.
