COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The University of Missouri curators have rejected the appeal of an assistant professor who drew national attention for her run-ins with student journalists during protests.
The four-campus system announced Tuesday in a news release that the board unanimously reached the decision Monday during a closed session. The release said the board found that Melissa Click’s appeal “brought no new relevant information” and that the matter was “closed.”
Curators Chairwoman Pamela Henrickson said after the board met Monday in open session and before its closed session that Click was continuing to be paid pending the appeal.
A spokesman for the curators, John Fougere, said Click’s pay ceases as of Tuesday.
Click has said in a previous statement that her dismissal was unfair and that the normal, on-campus procedures weren’t followed.
