Mizzou Expects to Block Future Campout Protests

May 17, 2016

In the fall, a student protest movement at the University of Missouri at Columbia attracted national attention when it camped out on campus to draw attention to racial issues. The university didn't attempt to remove the protest.

Now the university is considering a plan to start enforcing a rule, dating back to 1949, that bars students from creating a "bedroom or living room" on campus grounds, The Kansas City Star reported. The rule wasn't created to block protests, but officials may now enforce it to prevent future encampments.
