These videos stem from discussions of the Race Relations Committee of the Faculty Council at the University of Missouri.
Since May, this group of 12 faculty, staff and students has worked to name the vexing, longstanding problems of race relations at Mizzou and to name solutions as well. This committee sees its work as part of a longterm process of change.
The committee aims to develop tools and strategies to assist the faculty and to offer afresh to the broader Mizzou community ways to better understand the misunderstandings about race and ethnicity.
We ask: What can each of us do today to make Mizzou a safe and welcoming place for everyone? What can we do to make Mizzou a local, regional, national and global leader in race relations in terms of teaching, service, research and economic development?
