Missouri Governor Jay Nixon will visit the University of Missouri Thursday.
Governor Nixon will visit the Bradford Research Center and will meet with plant science students and faculty.
It is the only academic program in Missouri to study plant production, protection, and biology from lab to field.
The governor may also talk about the latest student enrollment numbers. You’ll recall ABC 17 News has reported that a drop in first year enrollments and student retention is expected to lead to a significant budget shortfall for the university.
Governor Nixon’s round table discussion is expected to start around 10:15 Thursday morning.
