University of Missouri President Resigns Amid Protests over Racial Intolerance
The president of the University of Missouri has resigned his post amid student protests over racial intolerance at the school.
Tim Wolfe announced his decision at a Monday morning meeting of the university curators, the system’s governing board.
Wolfe’s announcement comes after a weekend that saw members of the the school’s football team refuse to participate in team activities until Wolfe left office.
One protester, a graduate student named Jonathan Butler, has been on a hunger strike for the past week.
“The frustration and anger that I see is clear, real, and I don’t doubt it for a second,” Wolfe said.
