System, University of Missouri

The first reference to the four-campus University System (Columbia, Kansas City, Rolla and St. Louis) should be University of Missouri System. Thereafter use UM System, University System or University (with uppercase U). Uppercase System when used alone.

The four universities in the System are identified as followed:

  • University of Missouri (MU or Mizzou, not UMC)
  • University of Missouri–Kansas City (UMKC)
  • Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T)
  • University of Missouri–St. Louis (UMSL)

In the cases above, use an en dash (medium dash; see dashes) rather than a hyphen when possible: University of Missouri–St. Louis.

For more information, see the Collected Rules and Regulations of the UM System: Chapter 170.060 university identification and symbols.
