Many members of MU’s faculty and staff are asking the University of Missouri to fire assistant professor Melissa Click and Student life leader Janna Basler.
The Department of Student Life placed Basler on administrative leave late Wednesday afternoon.
They were involved in an assault on a student reporter during Monday’s protests on MU’s Carnahan Quad. The assault was caught on video and has gone viral. Click is heard on video asking fellow protestors for “muscle” to remove the journalist from the scene.
Click is an assistant professor for the MU Department of Communication and Basler is a Student Life Associate Director.
