Nixon Signs Bill Allowing Harris-Stowe to Offer Grad Degrees

Jul 17, 2015

Harris-Stowe State University is closer to offering graduate degrees for the first time ever after Gov. Jay Nixon signed a bill removing restrictions that prevented the St. Louis-based university from conferring advanced degrees.

Nixon was at the university Thursday to sign the bill, calling higher education a necessity.

The university must now get approval from its accrediting agency and from the state's Coordinating Board for Higher Education.
