Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader is leading Missouri S&T into a new era

“Missouri S&T is poised to address the new great challenges facing our nation and world.”

- Cheryl B. Schrader, Ph.D.  

Dr. Cheryl B. Schrader is the 21st leader in Missouri University of Science and Technology’s nearly 150-year history and one of the few female engineers to ascend to the top leadership position of a college or university in the United States.

Since becoming chancellor in 2012, Schrader has led a comprehensive strategic planning effort involving thousands of S&T stakeholders and more than a year of work and study. In 2013, the University of Missouri System Board of Curators endorsed “Rising to the Challenge: Missouri S&T’s Strategy for Success,” which sets the university’s bold course for the next six years and beyond. The plan focuses on providing a top return on investment to Missouri S&T’s key partners.
