Some MU students could face disciplinary action after a campus protest Thursday

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Some MU students could face disciplinary action after protests on campus.

Dozens of students protested the restructuring of the university's social justice centers Thursday.

MU spokesperson Christian Basi confirmed that demonstrators walked through Jesse Hall and a student union after being told that disruptions were not allowed there.

He says that any disciplinary action for students will be decided by the office of student accountability.

Basi said, "It's part of the investigation from the office of student accountability. They'll be looking at that- they'll be looking at what the actions of the students were within the buildings. They were loud enough for us to feel like it was appropriate that it was a disruption and to forward it to the office of student accountability. Now, it's under review, and they'll make a decision based on that information and that evidence that they have."

Basi says that this restructuring phase is adding professional positions and giving financial help to the social justice centers.
