Jonathan Leicht started this petition to Dr. Wubah and the MU Administration

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, MU shifted to online-only instruction in the Spring 2020 semester, and later implemented a Pass/Fail policy in which students could choose the classes they could recieve a P or F in so long as they achieved a passing grade. The stress of the pandemic has not been lifted, as the virus continues to ravage the country, the death toll at 233,000 in America alone at the time of writing this petition. Uncertainty within the 2020 Election Cycle has also left many students disillusioned and beyond anxious, as they and their families' very rights may on the line.

While it is commendable for MU to shift to online-only instruction post Nov. 16, it is felt that there are very few supports in place for that transition. The quality of education students are paying for vary wildly from professor to professor, with many not having the capacity, willingness, or opportunity to provide meaningful online education. Additionally, many online-only professors seem to be under the impression that students aren't currently enrolled in other classes, have jobs, care for loved ones and family, or are in internships that preoccupy their lives, meaning that many professors assign too much work without enough leeway. This is both harmful to students and to professors, as again, many professors have difficulty traversing an online-only instructional path and create more work for themselves while diminishing student work given the workload. 

MU Students ask the University Administration and Dr. Wubah to consider reinstating the Pass/Fail policy as it was in the Spring 2020 semester for the Fall 2020 semester. It is our belief this policy will help relieve stress and anxiety in what feels like the end of the world for many at-risk students, and help provide relief for many professors who aren't as well-versed with online-only instruction as they are with in-person instruction.
