Meyer, who currently is the assistant vice president for student affairs at Fort Hays State University, will start next month.
At Fort Hays State, Meyer led student activities, Greek life, student publications and residential life.
She holds a Journalism degree and a Master of Science in Counselor Education and is working on her doctorate in student affairs in higher education from Kansas State University.
Meyer succeeds Dr. Judy Grimes, who has served as interim vice president for student affairs since last April.
“I am excited to join the team at Missouri Western,” Meyer said. “In my interactions with staff, faculty, students and alumni, pride in the institution and a true sense of community were described repeatedly.”
