This Monday, we're featuring the Political Science program at Mizzou. With courses in public policy, international affairs and political theory, "Poli Sci" majors go on to pursue careers in a wide range of professional fields. #MajorMondays
Dr. Kattesh Katti's research is featured in this Voice of America - VOA story.
“It sounds like a fairy tale, but we are really in advanced stages in terms of tumor treatment, in terms of disease diagnostics," Katti said.
Today is my final day as the voice of Mizzou’s social media accounts, so I probably shouldn’t put off saying goodbye and thank you any longer. I helped launch the accounts and have been posting since the beginning, which makes it even harder. I’ll do my best.
What started as an experiment using a collection of my friends, current students and alumni has grown beyond my wildest dreams. Our initial goal back in 2009 was simple: have a bigger and more engaged audience than kansas. Of course Tigers rose to the occasion and smashed those benchmarks in just a few months.
We’ve gone on a fantastic journey. I’ve had the honor of celebrating successes, mourning tragedies, being awe-struck by generosity and laughing to the point of tears. Opening the networks every day and not knowing what to expect is one of my life’s biggest pleasures. It’s an adventure, and I still haven’t fully accepted that I’ve reached this one’s end.
I know I’ll never forget not sleeping to have gif wars on [sometimes potential] snow days, welcoming thousands of new members of the Mizzou family, going wild on Beyoncé’s birthday, recognizing Tigers of Mizzou, reminding people of what day it is on October 3 and April 25, trolling kansas, and being proud of Tigers of all stripes.
I won’t be leaving Mizzou, fortunately for me (your opinion may vary). I’m excited to be taking my next step professionally as a communications manager in the Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity and hope we still have the opportunity to interact on a regular basis. I would be remiss to not thank my incredibly talented coworkers over the years for being so great at what they do that I’m constantly driven to improve myself.
With every fiber of my being, I believe in the good of Mizzou and the people here because I’ve seen it first-hand as a Missouri native, child of two Mizzou alumni, School of Journalism student and proud alumnus. I hope that through my work I’ve been able to make the university feel like the home it’s been for me, be helpful when you’ve had questions, give a voice to your concerns and even occasionally make you laugh. And I ask that you never forget, especially in contentious times, how much there is that unites us.
Thank you for everything.
