Mizzou Suffers Heavy Loses After Catering to #blacklivesmatter

The University of Missouri is forced to cut hundreds of jobs as student enrollment drops 7.4%.

The University of Missouri just announced a plan to cut approximately 400 jobs amid a steep drop in student enrollment. The University saw a 7.4 percent decrease in student enrollment which accounts for $16.6 million in lost revenue. In addition to cutting 400 jobs, Mizzou will raise tuition by 2.1% to help offset the costs.
This is the second significant enrollment drop in two consecutive years. Mizzou officials blamed the enrollment decline on ongoing “public perception concerns.” The “perception concerns” stem from Black Lives Matter protests in November 2015.
The protests featured:

As a result of the protests, Mizzou applications for this academic year were way down. The school lost 23% of its freshman class. This resulted in school officials shuttering several dormitories. The school is also facing the prospect of a $32 million dollar budget shortfall.

Earlier this month, the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) published its annual list of all member schools that are still accepting applications for first-year or transfer students for next fall. Mizzou is still on that list. At the Monday campus forum, the interim chancellor suggested the formation of a committee to find ways to revamp Mizzou’s image to become “more forward looking.”
