Information regarding social justice centers

A message from Vice Chancellor Maurice Gipson.

Dear Campus Community, 

The University of Missouri knows how important our social justice centers are to the success and support of our community. I want to dispel rumors that you might have seen and to tell you that we are not closing our social justice centers. We are committed to enabling greater student success with improved support from our social justice centers. 

Based on ongoing strategic planning conversations that began after I arrived last summer, the Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity is implementing a restructuring plan for our social justice centers that will enhance their ability to support our campus community. 

I will have more details in the coming weeks after I meet with student groups and staff. I want to assure you that our social justice centers remain strong, and we are committed to supporting them. 

Maurice Gipson
Vice Chancellor of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity
