    Accuracy in Academia ^ | September 26, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    After student protests rocked the campus of the University of Missouri in 2015, student enrollment has dropped significantly. The student protests became national news, as a college professor named Melissa Click shoved a student journalist who sought access to cover the protests on racism. "Enrollment at the University of Missouri continued a decline that began after campus protests in November 2015, with this fall's enrollment the lowest since 2008," the Associated Press reported last week. "Official numbers released Wednesday show the university attracted 20,870 students this fall, down 12.9 percent since a record set in 2015." "Missouri did slightly better...

    The taxpayer-funded University of Missouri is offering segregated weekly meetings “for students, staff and faculty of color” to discuss “racial identity,” “skills for surviving and resisting hate” and their “experiences as a person of color at a Predominately White Institution.” The University of Missouri’s College of Education sponsors the segregated meetings, which are slated to occur every Friday afternoon in the public school’s Multicultural Center. Students who attend will “process race-related macro and microaggressions” and “heal as a community,” a poster adverting the segregated therapy sessions explains.

    Timothy Vaughn dutifully cheered the University of Missouri for a decade, sitting in the stands with his swag, two hot dogs and a Diet Coke. He estimates he attended between 60 and 85 athletic events every year—football and basketball games and even tennis matches and gymnastics meets. But after the infamous protests of fall 2015, Missouri lost this die-hard fan.

    Officials at the University of Missouri’s flagship campus in Columbia have finally rid themselves of the administrator and the professor who physically and verbally attacked student journalists during the eruption of Black Lives Matter protests that rocked the school’s campus in November 2015. The firing of both taxpayer-funded employees — mass communication professor Melissa Click and senior associate director for Greek life Janna Basler — took 20 months. Basler, the Greek life director, shoved up against a lone student photographer Tim Tai as he attempted to capture images for a local newspaper. Scuttlebutt about Basler’s employment status began earlier this...
  • NY Times: Campus protests ‘a disaster’ for Mizzou

    Hot Air ^ | 10 July 2017 | John Sexton
    The 2015 protests that rocked the University of Missouri campus and eventually led to the ouster of the school’s president “has been a disaster for the university.” That’s the conclusion of the NY Times which published a story yesterday on declining enrollment at Mizzou. Before the protests, the university, fondly known as Mizzou, was experiencing steady growth and building new dormitories. Now, with budget cuts due to lost tuition and a decline in state funding, the university is temporarily closing seven dormitories and cutting more than 400 positions, including those of some nontenured faculty members, through layoffs and by leaving...

    The University of Missouri’s social media accounts and its threat-warning system face an uncertain future after the university laid off its entire staff responsible for their upkeep as part of a cost-cutting measure. Leaders of financially troubled Mizzou may also end up serving as their own spokespeople, should the UM System’s flagship institution go through another public relations nightmare like its racial protests from a year and a half ago.
  • Freshman enrollment at Mizzou to take a steep drop in August (PC fallout)

    05/07/2017 12:10:02 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 45 replies
    The University of Missouri-Columbia is expecting at least a 14-percent decline in incoming freshmen this fall, resulting in its smallest class in nearly two decades. Administrators project that about 4,000 freshmen will enroll in August. That’s down by about 700 students from 2016 and significantly lower than in 2015, when more than 6,000 enrolled. The shrinking numbers have been tied at least partly to the protests on campus in 2015 that followed reports of racism on and near campus. The school issued a news release Friday afternoon that mentions the enrollment decline only indirectly. “A class of this size gives...

    The public university that gave us Melissa “Muscle” Click – and announced open season on student journalists that try to cover social justice warriors – continues to suffer fallout from the November 2015 melee. The University of Missouri is shutting down three dorms next year because of low freshman enrollment. Technically they are being taken “offline” to see if enrollment bumps back up, and “most or all” staff will keep their jobs, Residential Life Director Frankie Minor said in an email. This is on top of four other dorms that were already scheduled to go “offline” because of plummeting enrollment....

    In the age of safe spaces and trigger warnings comes another new trend to the college repertoire: coloring books. This fall, campuses nationwide are offering coloring books to students to help them de-stress. At American University on Monday, its counseling center provided coloring sheets in honor of Healthy Campus Week, noting on its Facebook page that adult coloring books “can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.” Conditions cited include obsessive-compulsive, eating, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as anger management and substance abuse issues. “The time and focus that adult coloring takes helps the individual remove...

While many schools prohibit handguns on campus, Mizzou football seems to be the only program that specifically prohibits owning a handgun as a...
  • Mizzou Renames ‘Unisex’ Restrooms Because Term Isn’t Inclusive Enough

    The University of Missouri (MU) is renaming its “Unisex” restrooms on campus in response to complaints that the current label isn’t inclusive. Henceforth, restrooms intended for use by both men and women will simply be labeled “toilet.” The change is apparently meant to accommodate student complaints that the “unisex” label, intended to encompass everybody, is actually exclusionary and hurtful. “Unisex is just such an uncomfortable and outdated word,” MU student Sterling Waldman told the Columbia Missourian. The word, Waldman said, excludes people who identify as neither male nor female. Waldman serves as the social justice chair in MU’s student senate,...

    What is with this school? The University of Missouri seems to be a breeding ground for unhinged progressives, who appear to have turned a vigil remembering the victims of the Orlando attack into some weird lecture about race. The College Fix had the details concerning what Mizzou graduate and activist Tiffany Melecio said before addressing the diverse crowd, namely how she was nervous getting up on stage because of all the white people in attendance. “I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd, and that wasn’t a joke,” she said...

    The University of Missouri, which was rocked by race protests last year that toppled its two leaders, caused its biggest donors to retreat and dampened interest among prospective students, will spend more than $1 million to audit its diversity policies. In addition to the $1.1 million audit, the UM System also plans to spend $2 million on other diversity initiatives, including the hiring of a chief diversity officer and systemwide task force, the Missourian reported earlier this week. IBIS Consulting Group will conduct the comprehensive audit, interviewing students, professors and staff on all four campuses in the UM System, according...

    A congressional committee has included a local Islamic charity in a new round of inquiries into suspected ties between not-for-profit groups and terrorists. The U.S. Senate Finance Committee has requested the financial records of 25 Islamic charities, including the Columbia-based Islamic American Relief Agency, or IARA. In particular, the request included donor lists that are reported to the IRS but protected under a privacy statute. The request comes two years after FBI, Department of the Treasury and other federal agency investigations into charities suspected of having ties to international terrorists. Since 2001, the United States has frozen more than $136...

    Does the University of Missouri have a death wish? In the wake of capitulating to race grievance demonstrators, Mizzou is already experiencing a decline in applications so severe that it is closing four dorms and a drop in donations that is causing a financial crisis. Although the faculty no longer includes Melissa “I need some muscle” Click, apparently race-obsessed leftists still occupy positions of power. The university’s Faculty Council Committee on Race Relations is digging an even deeper hole for the school.
