COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The governing board of the University of Missouri System is asking to hear from students about racial issues at the Columbia campus.
The University of Missouri Board of Curators on Thursday announced it wants student input during a Friday meeting.
A release from the board says curators want to hear about minority students’ experiences on campus and issues raised by graduate students.
The meeting follows student protests and one student’s hunger strike over the administration’s handling of racial issues. Two top administrators then resigned earlier this month.
The university also has been criticized for abruptly cutting health care subsidies for graduate assistants, which were later reinstated. And some longstanding agreements with Planned Parenthood were recently canceled amid legislative investigations that delved into the university’s relationship with a Columbia clinic.
