Missouri system president Tim Wolfe announced his resignation at a MU Board of Curators meeting Monday morning.

Wolfe argued his resignation would not effect change in and of itself, but accepted his role as a sacrificial lamb. “This is not the way we achieve change,” Wolfe said. “Change comes from listening, learning and conversation.” Change also came – quickly – after the football team became involved. 

Shortly after Wolfe’s announcement, MU graduate student Jonathan Butler – whose now week-long hunger strike started the movement toward Wolfe’s removal and gained the football team’s attention – tweeted he would begin eating.

Gary Pinkel stated Sunday his team’s strike was tied to Butler’s hunger strike so the ending of one meant the end of  the other.
