Gonzaga hires Missouri educator fired over protest conduct

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – A University of Missouri assistant communications professor fired for her conduct during student protests late last year has a new job with a university in Washington state.

The Kansas City Star reports that Melissa Click has been hired as a lecturer at Gonzaga University in Spokane.
Click was fired in February after a videotaped confrontation in which she called for “some muscle” to remove a student videographer from a protest area in November on the University of Missouri’s Columbia campus. The video went viral.

As dean of Gonzaga’s College of Arts and Sciences, Elisabeth Mermann-Jozwiak, says Gonzaga officials knew of Click’s recent history and were confident in welcoming her to the university.

Click was hired for a one-year, non-tenure-track position as a lecturer in Gonzaga’s communication studies department.
