March 3, 2011 resolution

Whereas, the University of Missouri strives to provide a welcoming and safe environment to all of our faculty, staff, students, and visitors;

Whereas, we condemn acts of hatred and violence to any person in our community;

Whereas, heinous and violent crimes, including sexually based offenses, have been recently committed on our campus;

Therefore, be it resolved that the Faculty Council of the University of Missouri's flagship campus condemns in the strongest possible terms the perpetrators of crimes which cause bodily harm and/or mental anguish.  Further, we will not be satisfied until our campus provides a safe and welcoming environment for all.
