University of Central Missouri

Multipurpose Building Considered one the finest facilities of its kind in the nation, the Multipurpose Building is in its 36th year of service to the university. The $5.5 million facility was built at no expense to the State of Missouri, as financing was accomplished solely through student fees. The “Multi” truly lives up to its name, as it is one of the busiest places on campus. In addition to being the home of Mules and Jennies basketball and indoor track and field, Jennies volleyball, and Mules wrestling, the facility is used by university students, faculty, and staff, as well as the general public. Designed primarily for recreational use, the building features a spacious main arena with a sixlane track, a swimming pool, five indoor and two outdoor handball/racquetball courts, areas for free and universal weights, an activities area, locker rooms, meeting rooms, and offices for UCM’s Intercollegiate Athletics staff. The main arena can accommodate four basketball or six volleyball courts at one time or all of the events for an indoor track meet. Seating capacity in the Multipurpose Building is 8,500 for basketball and volleyball, making it the largest such facility in the MIAA. It also seats 1,640 fans for indoor track meets and 10,000 people for concerts. Numerous special events take place in the Multi each year. It hosted the Missouri State High School Activities Association’s state volleyball tournament from 1988 until 2008, and state high school playoff games for basketball are also played annually in the building.

In addition, the MIAA Indoor Track and Field Championships are contested in the Multipurpose Building. The facility is also used for UCM’s annual commencement ceremonies, major concerts, and other UCM events. The Multi underwent a major renovation during the summer of 1998. An inlaid-wood floor was installed in the main arena, replacing most of the original Tartan surface and eliminating the need for the portable-wood floor that had been used for basketball since 1988. Additionally, the running track was resurfaced and new jumping and vaulting pits were created for track and field.

During the two years Ensign was a graduate assistant under Ersland the Mules compiled a 1416 dual record, while finishing in the top 25 at the NCAA National Championships both seasons (18th in 2009, 22nd in 2010). Ensign also helped guide the Mules to five individual All-American performances. Before coming to Central Missouri, Ensign spent one season as an assistant coach at Division I Wagner University in Staten Island, N.Y., after a four-year career for the Seahawks.

2013-2014

Season Preview The University of Central Missouri Mules Wrestling squad begins their season ranked fifth in the MIAA 2013-2014 Preseason Poll. The Mules finished third in the MIAA last season, with a 6-7 overall record. This year the Mules have 12 returners, including Eric Mateo, the only National Qualifier from UCM last season. The Mules will look to their returning members, along with some fresh faces to make an impact this season. Mules head coach, Justin Ensign breaks down the Mules weight-by-weight below. 125 pounds: “Freshman Malacai Collins from Warrensburg is looking pretty slick, he’s pretty good, and he is someone we recruited because he is talented, not just because he is a local kid. He’s a good athlete. He’ll be pushed by Ty Balty who is a junior and former Academic All-American. Ty works really hard so that will be a good battle there, with two guys that work really hard.” 133 pounds: “Hunter Neighbors is looking like the favorite. Last year he started the year at 125, and by the end he was wrestling 133. He had some good wins, he’s looking better, he’s improved in a lot of the areas he was looking weak in last year.” Andy Robinson is also expected to wrestle at 133 pounds. 141 pounds: “We have a returning national qualifier Eric Mateo. It’s going to be a battle between him and Aaron Engle, who had a pretty good off season. Aaron is very talented, and has a brother that has had a lot of success at the Division III level, which I think is pushing him to want to be more successful.” 149 pounds: “Frank Cagnina is our big transfer this year. He was a top recruit, and has wrestled at the Division I National Tournament before. Frank had an off season knee surgery, so the big thing with him will be to stay healthy. Frank works really hard. Depth-wise we’re pretty deep there, we have several guys that can slide into that spot if we need them to. Behind Cagnina, we have a freshman, and state champion, Logan Carier.” 157 pounds: “We have Zeb Spicer who was a starter two years ago, last year he was injured. He’s coming back, and he’s looking good. It’s taking some time to get him back to a high level, because he had hip surgery, but he is still looking good. Zeb, is a pinner and with his experience all we really need is to keep him healthy.” Aside from Spicer, the Mules have Alex Schmersahl, a transfer from Arizona State, and freshmen Brennan Johnson and Evan Young at 157 pounds.

165 pounds: “ We have our returner Ty Loethen and Josh Thomson, who is a transfer from Maryville in St. Louis. Thomson had a pretty good redshirt year for them, and still has four years left. Ty and Josh actually wrestled each other in a tournament, and Ty won 3-0, but it was a close match. But that right there is the competition that will keep Ty honest. Josh is a former Missouri State champ, we’ll find a spot somewhere.” 174 pounds: “Joshua Ploof was the starter last year, but he has to sit first semester because he only has one semester of eligibility left, so he won’t start until second semester. In the meantime we have Mike Boyd, a freshman that has really looked good so far, he’s got a big strong frame and is working really hard.” 184 pounds: “ Jacob Reiman will likely be our guy. He was out most of last season with a shoulder injury. He is a redshirt sophomore. He just needs to step up, the talent is there.” 197 pounds: “ Todd Brier started the year at 184 and then moved up to 197 last year. He looks good, he won over 20 matches last year. He’s also a good student, and has been Academic All-American twice. This is his senior year, and this is all he has left. “ Roy Hickman and Nick Lovejoy will also be wrestling at 195 pounds. Hickman is currently playing football for the Mules. 285 pounds: “ We have Jake Clark, who we red shirted last year, placed in some tournaments. There is also Derek Morgan, a freshman from Knob Noster. He’s a hard worker, and looks better each day. When we recruited him we knew we had something special. “ Season Outlook “The big thing for us is getting tough. We were picked dead last in the conference last season, and then we ended up finishing third behind two teams that got trophies at the national competition. We have a tough league, and we’ll have a rough road to get guys to the National tournament. We just need to be tougher, battle and compete. I think we want it, we just need guys to step up and place. We need to be more consistent. They’ve been working hard, and they’re pretty positive so far. I think it will really depend on how they react when they get knocked down, we are going to wrestle some tough competition. We’re going to wrestle some tough teams, to help get us ready for the post season. We want to finish stronger. “

The University of Central Missouri transforms students into lifelong learners, dedicated to service, with the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed and lead.

Future-Focused Academics

The world moves at a faster pace than ever before. UCM’s innovative programs use new technologies to keep students up to date on the latest changes in their fields of study. Our faculty members are accomplished in their fields as well. They bring their experiences in industry and academia to their classrooms for our on-campus students in Warrensburg and Lee’s Summit, as well as to their virtual classrooms through our online programs.

Hands-on Experience

Learning by doing is a cornerstone of our 150 academic programs. Through hands-on experiences, students take their knowledge from the classroom and apply it in real-life situations. Whether it’s conducting research with faculty members, developing a business plan for a local company or battling it out in a national criminal justice competition, UCM students graduate well prepared for the future with practical, applicable experience.

Culture of Service

For more than 140 years, UCM’s motto, “Education for Service,” has been embodied by students who volunteer countless hours assisting communities, businesses and non-profit agencies.

This tradition continues today when student groups clear debris after a tornado or build homes for local families through Habitat for Humanity. Service has always been a foundation of the university. By learning at a university that values that service, UCM students continue to make an impact on their communities long after they graduate.

Global Perspective

UCM values diversity in thought, culture and people. As a result, the university takes a worldly perspective on education and prepares students to thrive in a globalized economy.

President Barack Obama spoke to a crowd of UCM students, faculty and staff, and Warrensburg residents on July 24, 2013 at the UCM Student Recreation & Wellness Center.

UCM’s International Studies major examines global issues affecting human development, peace and security. The university’s study abroad programs connect students with more than 60 countries and 285 universities worldwide. UCM also has nearly 600 students from 47 different countries represented on campus. Experiencing these different ideas, cultures and people gives our students a unique perspective and prepares them for today’s global society.

Dr. Charles Ambrose University President

Board of Governors

Charles M. Ambrose, Ed.D., became the 15th president of the University of Central Missouri on Aug. 1, 2010. A career educator who is a fervent advocate of servant leadership and engaged learning, he is committed to promoting academic quality, excellence in teaching and the collegiate experience. During his first year at UCM, President Ambrose helped guide the institution through the building of a new Strategic Governance Model in partnership with the Association for Governing Boards. He also provided leadership through an extensive administrative and academic review process designed to provide a stronger, more viable educational experience for students, while also cutting operational costs.

Ambrose sought to build student enrollment, an effort that continues to pay off with the largest enrollment in the university’s 140-year history. He has also begun a major initiative to encourage and provide assistance for students to graduate college within four years with less debt. The president continues to build strong relationships with the men and women who serve this country. This includes the establishment of the Whiteman Advantage Program, which brings together personnel from Whiteman Air Force Base and the university to work cooperatively in creating new educational opportunities for military members. The university also developed the Military Tuition Package, which provides savings on an education for military men and women currently serving their country, as well as their spouses and dependents, and veterans. Under his direction, the university developed a new strategic positioning initiative to provide a more articulated understanding of what makes UCM unique and helped guide the institution in establishing its future priorities. In fall 2012, Ambrose launched the new Missouri Innovation Campus, in collaboration with the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District and private industry, which will allow students to begin college during their junior year of high school and complete a degree in four years with little or no debt. President Ambrose attended Furman University, where he was a four-year letterman and captain of the soccer team. After graduating from Furman with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, he earned two advanced degrees in higher education administration, a master’s from the University of Louisville and a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Georgia.

Jerry Hughes Athletics Director Under the leadership of Jerry Hughes, UCM’s athletics program has enjoyed unprecedented success, highlighted by the dual NCAA basketball championships in 1984 by the Mules and Jennies, the 1994 and 2003 NCAA baseball championships, and the 2003 women’s Intercollegiate Bowling Association national title. In 2005, Hughes was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. Entering the 2013 fall semester, the Mules and Jennies have won 139 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association championships, five national championships, had 44 other top four NCAA finishes, and made more than 250 NCAA post-season appearances during Hughes’ tenure. The Central Missouri athletic program also won the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association All-Sports Trophy each year from 1998-99 (the year of the award’s inception) until the award was discontinued in 2002-03. UCM finished second in the NACDA Director’s Cup in 2010-11, the best finish in school and MIAA history after finishing third the previous two years. Hughes was named Central Region Athletics Director of the Year for the 1998-99, 2001-02 and 2010-11 seasons as selected by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). He is the first three-time winner at any NCAA level--in the history of the Athletics Director of the Year program. Hughes has been Central Missouri’s athletics director since Jan. 25, 1983. Prior to that, Hughes had served as associate athletics director since July of 1981. In 1991-92, he served as the Mules’ interim head basketball coach and guided the team to a 15-13 record. Hughes has been a Division II member of the NCAA Executive Committee and chairman of the Division II Championships Committee.

Take a Mule Refresher and Learn What’s So Special about Missouri’s State Animal

Often called mankind’s most successful hybrid, mules are the offspring of crossing a male donkey or jack with a female horse or mare. Since they can’t reproduce, mules have been bred one generation at a time for more than 3,000 years. A strong, resourceful beast of burden, the mule can outwork, outpull, outlive and outsmart a horse of similar size and type. In 1995, the mule became Missouri’s official state animal, but the long-eared creatures have been known as “Missouri Mules” long before then. The term, “Missouri Mules,” was used casually until it became famous at the historic 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. At that exposition a six-mule hitch belonging to W. A. Elgin of Platte County swept all competition, and a mule from a Morgan County farm received the $10,000 Mayor’s Award. Newspaper accounts of this show-ring prowess brought worldwide attention to the state’s mule breeders and helped assure that the largest and finest animals would be known as “Missouri Mules.”

Many people assume that the relationship of mules and jennies is the same as that of siblings, but jennies are female donkeys. So, the relationship of mules and jennies is really the same as nephew/niece and aunt. Jenny is a common name but technically a female donkey is a jennet. Popular with farmers and settlers because of its hardy nature, Missouri Mules pulled pioneer wagons to the Wild West and played a crucial role in moving troops, artillery and supplies in several wars. In fact, many of the mules used in World War I were shipped by train from Warrensburg. The mule’s affiliation with Central Missouri dates back to the early 1920s. When the 1921-22 school year began, school officials decided “Normals” and “Teachers” were no longer appropriate nicknames for UCM’s athletic teams. Therefore, the school’s Athletic Committee established a contest that promised the winner a three-year postgraduate subscription of the school newspaper. More than 80 suggestions were received, but the winning entry was submitted by John Thomason of Chilhowee, class of 1924, who felt at least one Missouri team should be known as “Mules.” Central Missouri’s fifth mascot - Mancow - is the university’s first real Missouri mule. The line-back brown mule comes from Paradise Mules in Belle, Mo. It took several months for farm manager Dave Ewing to find the perfect mule. He was determined to acquire the right mule trained to remain calm around big crowds and loud noises - that game cannon gets loud! Mancow the Mule is the second UCM mule to be tall (14.1 hands), a result of her thoroughbred heritage. The university’s first three mules were Shetland Pony breeds. She’s the second mule to be presented to the university as a gift. Erich “Mancow” Muller, ‘88, made a gift to purchase the new mascot. Abbedale, her immediate predecessor, was donated to the university by 1938 alumnus and well-known mule producer, Sam Smiser from Newhall, Calif. The 10-year-old mare mule represented the university at home football games and other events. UCM agriculture students care for her at Prussing Farm, a few miles east of Warrensburg on Division Road. Following her first appearance at the 2004 Missouri State Fair, Mancow saw her first game action, as Central Missouri hosted MIAA-rival Northwest Missouri State on Sept. 11.

Top 10 Reasons to Admire a Mule

1 0. Affectionate and loving as a dog 9. Can carry heavy loads, up to 300 pounds 8. Rarely miss when they aim to kick something 7. Jump amazing heights from a stand-still start (go watch a mule jump at a county fair - it’s amazing!) 6. Have a laid-back style and won’t be rushed 5. Valued so highly, once bought sight unseen 4. Inspire attitudes - cum mula peperit (when a mule foals), similar to once in a blue moon 3. Knows when to quit (hence its reputation for stubbornness) 2. Intelligent and not afraid of working 1. Because it became our mascot in 1922, over the skunk, bobcat and hippopotamus!

Warrensburg, Missouri is a friendly community of 18,000 people near the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 and Missouri Route 13. It is located just 40 miles southeast of suburban Kansas City, with its many cultural offerings, entertainment options and professional sports franchises. The county seat of Johnson County, Warrensburg is just four hours from St. Louis and three hours from Branson, Mo., with easy access by highway, Amtrak, or Greyhound bus. Other recreational opportunities include the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks 90 minutes to the southeast. Warrensburg is a city that emerged from a frontier gathering place more than 150 years ago. In 1833, a blacksmith from Kentucky named Martin Warren chose a well-travelled spot along an Osage Indian Trail to build a cabin and set up his blacksmith shop. His shop served as an informal gathering place for local farmers. Three years after moving to Missouri, Mr. Warren’s shop was named the county seat of the newly created County of Johnson. The township was named Warren’s Burg in honor of the local blacksmith, and in 1855, the township was incorporated and became the City of Warrensburg. It is that same strong midwestern work ethic displayed by its founder, and the same friendly atmosphere shown by his neighbors that may be seen in Warrensburg today. In the late 1800s and early 1900s Warrensburg was considered the Missouri Mule Capital because of the Horse and Mule Barn operated by the Jones Brothers on Railroad Street. Mules from the area won prizes at the State Fair (located just 30 minutes east in Sedalia, Mo.) and at even larger expositions like the one in St. Louis in 1904. The mule barn carried the motto, “Through these portals pass the meanest mules on earth.” Warrensburg is home to many historic sites, including “Blind” Boone Park, the historic Johnson County Courthouse, the Missouri Pacific Train Depot, and many historical churches. It is also the site of the Old Drum Memorial Statue, in honor of Old Drum, the hound shot and killed by his owner’s neighbor in 1869. Old Drum was eulogized

by George Graham Vest on September 23, 1870: “The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.” Today the city’s Park Department has eight park areas with a total of 326 acres, and a Community Center which offers a wide variety of recreational activities. Two public golf courses are available in town -- one at the Hidden Pines Country Club, and another at Pertle Springs, operated Photo courtesy of United States Air Force by the University of Central Missouri. Other attractions in the area include Powell Gardens, a 1,250+ botanical garden just 12 miles west of Warrensburg on Missouri Highway 50 that contains hiking trails, picnic areas, and seasonal displays; Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, Mo., home of the B-2 Bomber; Knob Noster State Park; and the Missouri State Fair, held each August in Sedalia, Mo. Of course, visitors to Warrensburg can also take in the exciting athletic events and various cultural experiences provided at the University of Central Missouri.
