Plummeting Enrollment Causes Mizzou to Close Some Dorms

Plummeting Enrollment Causes Mizzou to Close Some Dorms

Consequences…

The University of Missouri is facing big problems which can be traced directly to their refusal to make changes after the campus protests of 2015.

PJ Media reports:

U. of Missouri Shutters Dorms, Enrollment Plummets in Wake of 2015 Unrest

Perhaps nothing better foretold what was ahead for American college campuses like the November 2015 protests at the University of Missouri. The prolonged protests featured professor Melissa Click calling for “some muscle” to evict a student journalist from a public space, giving us a pretty good glimpse of how the left is again embracing violence and intimidation over debate.

Students involved in the protest undoubtedly felt great about what they were doing. It’s unlikely any of them considered the impact their antics would have on the school itself:

Center, Responsibility and Discovery residence halls will be “taken offline” next year due to low freshman enrollment, Residential Life Director Frankie Minor said in an email obtained by The Maneater.
Minor said in the email that the department still anticipates employing most or all staff members hired.

“Historically every year between now and August, various situations occur that result in position openings, e.g. normal attrition and voluntary staff choices, as well as unplanned academic or personal challenges,” the email said. “If necessary, we will offer alternative employment opportunities at comparable compensation to the remaining staff.”

If ResLife needs more space after ROAR, the housing selection process, starts April 10, the department will bring halls back online individually.

“This is an early move to try to be as prudent as possible with the resources we have,” MU spokeswoman Liz McCune said.

Something about this story just “Click”s with me!

After the Click incident, I made a post here commenting that prospective students may avoid universities that allow intimidation like that which had been allowed at Mizzou. I’m gratified to see that it appears to be happening.
