Missouri President Tim Wolfe Resigns Amid Student Protests

Missouri President Tim Wolfe on the streets.


Over the weekend, protests broke out at Missouri following a string of racially charged incidents on campus. A student group called "Concerned Student 1950" called for school president Tim Wolfe to resign due to ineffective leadership in combating the issues, and today he stepped down after an emergency meeting by the school's Board of Curators.

On Friday night, video of Wolfe struggling to answer a question about systematic oppression began to go viral.

By Saturday night, the Tigers football team boycotted football activities until Wolfe resigned, following the lead of grad student Jonathan Butler, who is currently in a hunger strike in order to oust Wolfe. We hope that this move helps quell the unrest on campus in Columbia.
