The Alliance for Health Care Education

As many of you have heard by now, Cox College’s next evolution is the Alliance for Healthcare Education. Missouri State, Ozarks Technical Community College, Springfield Public Schools, and CoxHealth are partnering together to build a powerful educational enterprise that will shape the future of health care in our region for many years to come!

A sizeable portion of Cox North’s campus is not currently being used, but the campus will be renovated and maximized to accommodate students in the Alliance. We’re excited to see how the details of this initiative will continue to take shape in the next year.

Letter from Dr. Amy Wutke, President of Cox College:

Kansas City Chiefs Raffle

We are raffling two tickets for the Super Bowl rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles on November 20! The tickets are in the lower bowl, include a parking pass, and are valued at $1,300 in total.

All of the proceeds from this raffle will benefit our student emergency fund. You can be eligible to win for as little as $10, but your chances of winning increase with each ticket purchased. We will draw the winner on October 18. Thank you for supporting our students!
