(KTRS) Former University of Missouri assistant professor Melissa Click is appealing her firing, last month, over her role last year in race-related student protests.
Click says her dismissal by university system curators was unfair. In firing Click, top university administrators cited her run-ins with police during October protests and with two student journalists weeks later on the Columbia campus.
More than 100 state lawmakers called for Click’s ouster. It is not immediately clear when Click’s appeal would be decided.
