Students, staff state support for #ConcernedStudent1950
COLUMBIA - Numerous university-related organizations have sent letters of support to the #ConcernedStudent1950 movement on the MU campus.
These letters of support follow a hunger strike by student activist Jonathan Butler, a strike by football players and a planned graduate student walkout calling for the removal of UM System President Tim Wolfe over his handling of a string of racist incidents on campus.
The letters include statements from MU faculty and staff, alumni, University of Missouri Dance Marathon, the Missouri Students Association, the Student Affiliates of School Psychology at the University of Missouri, L.S.V Active Members and Alumnae and MU's Muslim Students' Organization.
The UM Board of Curators called a meeting for Monday morning to discuss the ongoing tension.
