Full Coverage: University of Missouri unrest
After a spate of racially charged incidents on and around the University of Missouri campus, the football team announced that it would not participate in football-related activities and would support a hunger striker’s demand that the university president leave or be fired.
Two top University of Missouri system officials announced their resignations Monday following allegations that they had not sufficiently addressed racial issues on campus. Students danced on the quad where activists had set up a tent city. In addition, the football team announced that it was ending its strike and would resume practicing for this weekend’s football game.
