From the desk of William Stackman, Vice Provost for Student Affairs

Dear #Mizzou students,

Like many of you, I am saddened and outraged by the recent national events and racial injustice that continues to occur in America. My heart aches for the Black community.

Racial discrimination, targeted violence, and acts of hate are threats to our students of color and the anxiety, fear, and pain they regularly experience is real. The responsibility for systemic and lasting change that falls on their shoulders is not theirs. I remain committed to creating a campus environment in which the human dignity of every Tiger is valued, honored, and respected.

Please know that I am always here for you – feel free to contact me at any time.

You can read the statement on recent events from the UM System here.

Fight Tiger!

Vice Provost for Student Affairs
