About the PAC

The University of Missouri Flagship Council Political Action Committee was formed to support elected officials who support Mizzou, our flagship university, and public higher education in the state of Missouri. The PAC is governed by a board of directors separate from the Flagship Council Board. Both boards meet periodically throughout the year. Money for the PAC is provided by dues paying members who designate a percentage of their contribution for the PAC and supporters who make a separate donation directly to the PAC. Primarily during election years, the PAC Board meets and approves donations to candidates running for the General Assembly.

PAC contributions

Thus far, during the 2020 election cycle, the PAC Board voted to make contributions to a total of 8 candidates, both Republicans and Democrats, in Senate and House races for the August Primary Election. The PAC Board will determine candidate contributions for the upcoming November General Election.  The decision on which candidates to support is based on the members of the General Assembly who have demonstrated not only their support for higher education, but who understand and appreciate the value of our flagship institution to the state of Missouri.  Contributions from our membership in support of the PAC is a contributing factor in our success.

PAC events

During past legislative sessions, the PAC hosted events at the State Capitol that provided MFC members an opportunity to interact with their hometown representatives and senators. Other special events included partnering with the Mizzou Alumni Association’s Legislative Network Committee to serve Tiger Stripe ice cream to elected officials and their staff at the end of session to say thank you.
