A panel tasked with recommending changes for the University of Missouri system is moving forward despite funding cuts.
The University of Missouri Review Commission met for the first time Friday to discuss how to help a system rocked by turmoil following student protests and leadership changes. The system president and Columbia chancellor resigned amid protests.
Some lawmakers were frustrated about the handling of Columbia protests last year over what some saw as administrators' indifference to racial issues. In response, lawmakers created the commission.
