Keep Joel Poor as a University of Missouri Professor

On Monday August 24, 2020 long time and well respected Trulaske College of Business Professor Joel Poor was fired from teaching for a tasteless comment made to a student during a zoom lecture. While there is no room for this in the classroom, Joel gave an honest apology to his students (mind you the student expressed that he was not offended by the comment and took it as it was meant, a joke). We believe that one infraction does not justify losing one of Trulaske Business schools most important assets. Please give your signature if you believe Professor Poor deserves a second chance, because as a student that has been mentored by Joel for more than 2 years I certainly don't. Thank you.
