Mizzou: Two Years Later - Columbia Forum

Event Details: 

For decades, the University of Missouri was known for well-respected academics, including the world-renowned School of Journalism. Now people are likely to think of the national headlines of student protests, allegations of racism, and declining enrollment.

We have seen some changes: new administrators, new policies, and a new tuition program to more aggressively market the university to Missouri students.

The question remains: What (if any) improvements are actually taking place on Mizzou’s campus?

Learn about the latest developments from University of Missouri Board of Curators member David Steelman.
