University leaders expect “unpopular” decisions due to financial troubles


UM System President Mun Choi said he expects to make some "unpopular" decisions in the coming year due to COVID-19's impact on the school.

Choi made the comment during the Mu Faculty Council meeting on Wednesday alongside MU Provost Lantha Ramchand and Vice Chancellor Rhonda Gibler. Choi said he expected state leaders to cut tens of millions from the state budget for higher education.

Choi promised he would communicate whatever cuts or decisions the school made to faculty when they make them.

Ramchand said the school was still working out details of how classroom instruction would work for the fall semester.
