The American Association of University Professors is threatening to set up a meeting with their executive director on Monday to discuss the possibility of forming a committee. It would be in charge of investigating MU’s former assistant communication professor, Melissa Click.
During a February 26 letter, the organization cited concerns that Click was fired without a hearing before an MU faculty body.
In the latest email Thursday, the group urged the chair of the UM system board of curators, Pamela Henrickson, and Interim Chancellor Hank Foley to reverse their decision on firing Click.
It called for all action moving forward to “be consistent with the institutional regulations of the University of Missouri and with AAUP-supported procedural standards”, in order to avoid a possible investigation.
