Greetings from President Dobbins

Welcome to Southeast Missouri State University's website! Inside our site you will find a tremendous array of information about programs, people and events at Southeast.

Our website reflects what we consider to be the one key element of the University: students. Southeast strives continually to be, both literally and figuratively, a student-centered university.  At Southeast, we understand that our students are our most important resource. The design concept for Southeast's website, in fact, was developed by students, which reflects both the quality of our students and our goal of providing real-world educational experiences for our students.

We have entered a new century at Southeast. As we move into a period of increased growth, we rededicate our efforts to serve the region, the state and the nation by providing quality programs for students that are personal, professional and practical.

We invite you to explore Southeast and learn more about us. Hopefully, you will come to know the many sources of our pride in this fine institution and discover how Southeast might best serve you. We welcome any comments or suggestions and urge you to come visit us.
