  • The primary objectives of Morehead State University are meeting the educational needs of East Kentucky while striving to constantly improve the quality of our public service, economic development and applied research programs.

    MSU is ranked among the top public institutions in the South by U.S.News & World Report and offers Kentuckys best computer-student ratio in its computer laboratories. MSU offers one of four space science degrees in the nation, and our graduates are accepted into professional programs like medical, dental, law, and veterinary schools at rates above state and national averages.

    Morehead State was the first institution in Kentucky to offer a complete online degree program, the Master of Business Administration (MBA). The University is opening a new Space Science Facility this summer, to support research and our space science academic program, in partnership with NASA.

    Construction is underway for the Center for Health, Education and Research, through a partnership with St. Claire Regional Medical Center and the University of Kentucky. The CHER facility will improve access to health care in the surrounding area, as well as in rural health care training and education.

    MSU has recently built the Equine Health Education Center at the Derrickson Agricultural Complex. Built at a cost of $881,000, the facility was financed with a $550,000 grant from the Kentucky Equine Trust and additional funds from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and MSU.

    MSU will begin construction on a $30 million Student Recreation Center in 2009. Students voted a few years ago to fund the center through student fees.

    MSU is a charter member of the Ohio Valley Conference (NCAA Division I) and sponsors 17 sports for men and women. The football Eagles compete in the Pioneer Football League. Our cheerleading squads have won 26 national championships. Last year, mens basketball, womens soccer, and an individual rifle athlete made it to the NCAA tournament in their respective sports.

    Fiscally, the University currently operates on an annual budget of $122.5 million with about $46.6 million provided by the state and $52.8 million coming from tuition and fees. Additionally, grants and contracts from external sources for research, service and academic/student support projects generate more than $15 million each year.

    Annual private donations to the University, through the MSU Foundation, Inc., average $3 million annually.

    Statistically, the University has awarded more than 55,000 degrees and currently has more than 1,100 full-time employees. Enrollment for fall 2008 was 9,100, with the student body representing 100 Kentucky counties, 45 states and 36 foreign countries. The University attracts more than 50,000 visitors annually and its economic impact, directly and indirectly, on the Morehead area is estimated at more than $80 million yearly.
