|Type||College sports hall of fame|
The University of Missouri Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, located at Mizzou Arena in Columbia, Missouri, is a museum operated by the University of Missouri and is the highest honor bestowed upon a Mizzou student-athlete, coach or administrator.
The University of Missouri Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame was made possible by the 1989 bequest of $100,000 from the estate of the late A.C. (Ace) and Mary Stotler.
Its purpose is "to recognize and honor those individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the achievements and prestige of the University of Missouri in the field of athletics, and who have continued to demonstrate in their lives, the values imparted by intercollegiate athletics."
A total of 186 individuals and four teams have been inducted.
Athletes are not eligible for consideration until five years after completion of their competitive career. Coaches and staff members must have spent at least five years working at the University of Missouri and are also subject to a five-year waiting period.
The induction ceremony typically occurs in the February following the induction year.
