Remove University of Missouri System President, Tim Wolfe, from Office

This petition had 7,307 supporters


Tim Wolfe is an inadequate UM Systems President. He does not understand systems of oppression, yet claims to care about Black students. He did not intervene in the violence students faced during the peaceful parade demonstration on October 10, 2015 and has not apologized or recognized his negligence. We are asking for the immediate removal of Tim Wolfe. 

Jonathan Butler, an MU Grad student, embarked on a hunger strike that began at 9am on November 2, 2015. He is prepared to continue on this strike indefinitely or until Tim Wolfe is removed from office as the University of Missouri President. If you agree that Tim Wolfe is negligent, inadequate, and needs to be removed from his position, please sign and share this petition.  

Please review Jonathan Butler's story on why he will be striking as well as the attached media clips that show the Jonathan Butler being hit by the car carrying the U of M system president during the homecoming demonstration.
