Protest Teachable Moment Cont'd: More Budget Cuts Target Mizzou Grad Programs

Like it or not, the consequences and repercussions of racially divisive 2015 protests are still impacting MU for the worse . . . Here's the latest bit of bad news:

University of Missouri may cut 27 graduate programs - Kansas City Business Journal

Efforts by the University of Missouri to find budget cuts on the Columbia campus could spell the end of 27 doctoral, master's and graduate programs. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that a task force recommended the cuts based on low enrollment, low research productivity or low grant funding.

I would never send my kid to MU.
A school like that has nothing to teach my kid.
I want my children to get a real education.

F articles hidden behind paywalls @TKC. You ought to list the 27 programs, I'm curious. Undoubtedly they all, and more, needed to go.

If the Uni wants to save some bucks, eliminate every single "Diversity Coordinator" position on the campus. Literally EVERY ONE of the colleges has one, even fraking Engineering, where once you hit grad-level, whites are an extreme minority. The lowest paid coordinator last time I checked, raked in $150k/yr. The highest coordinator position that I could find was over $250k/yr. There are at least 18 schools/colleges on the MU campus alone, the savings would be yuuuuuge!

"We, The Black Student Union and the campus chapter of Black Lives Matter, demand the University abandon all MASTERS degree programs as the very term is a racist remnant of Missouri slave history."
