Calls for University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe to step down continue to grow louder as the school's faculty plan to walk out on classes Monday and Tuesday.
In a statement to the Columbia Missourian, the faculty said, "We, the concerned faculty of the University of Missouri, stand in solidarity with the Mizzou student activists who are advocating for racial justice on our campus and urge all MU faculty to demonstrate their support by walking out."
Students on the Mizzou campus say they're protesting Wolfe's lack of response to a string of racist incidents on campus.
