SISLT Statement on Current MU Campus Events


Student leaders at the University of Missouri recently placed a spotlight on the systemic racism present on our campus, and we at the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies stand with our student leaders. We respect the symbolic importance of recent actions. Protest in many forms is a good response to the members of our campus community who demonstrate a lack of respect for the basic rights and humanity of students and colleagues of color.
