Diversity Training Will be Required For University of Missouri Freshmen
The university made the announcement Thursday, days after a student was removed from the Columbia campus for shouting racial slurs at a black student group practicing for homecoming.
That incident came less than a month after someone shouted racial slurs a Missouri Students Association President Payton Head, who is black.
The Kansas City Star reports the training will eventually become mandatory for all faculty, staff and other students.
The training will start with new students coming to Missouri in January. University spokesman Christian Basi says that will allow the university to see what adjustments might be needed before about 6,200 freshmen enroll in the fall of 2016.
