To be Missouri’s premier transformational academic institution for nursing and health education, scholarship, practice, research and innovation.


The Sinclair School of Nursing (SSON) supports the core values of the University of Missouri – Respect, Responsibility, Discovery and Excellence.

The SSON’s additional values include diversity, inclusion and equity. Diversity references a broad range of individual, population and social characteristics. Inclusion represents environmental and organizational cultures in which faculty, students, staff and administrators with diverse characteristics thrive. Equity is the ability to recognize differences in resources or knowledge needed to allow individuals to participate in society, including access to higher education. These values, defined by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, are central to improving nursing education, addressing healthcare inequities and advancing civic leadership and engagement.
