MU Students Concerned With Uncertain Fate Of Library

Feb 4, 2019

The dean of MU’s Engineering department held a private meeting Monday with students regarding the future of the school’s library.

Dean Elizabeth Loboa wanted students to feel free to speak candidly without worrying about the press, so she asked any student not related to the Engineering college to leave the room, including reporters.

After about an hour, students left the forum expressing frustration about the discussion. Six students spoke with KBIA, but five of them preferred to remain anonymous.

Senior administrators at the University of Missouri College of Engineering have gathered to discuss how to combat a perceived lack of transparency and collaboration within the administration.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that more than 24 administrators from the school and campus spent four days at a retreat last week.

Dean Elizabeth Loboa said that she previously met with faculty members individually and held group sessions for the college's staff.
