“The abrupt announcement that graduate students will no longer receive subsidies for the student health insurance program is a matter of great concern. The faculty members of the College of Arts and Science strongly support our students. We will impose no sanctions on students who choose to participate in the scheduled walkout on Wednesday, August 26, 2015, if it occurs.”
“The Department of Physics and Astronomy is deeply concerned about the announcement that master’s and doctoral students will no longer receive subsidies for their health insurance. Our graduate students are absolutely crucial to the research and teaching missions of our university. They deserve to be treated with more consideration and respect.
The faculty members of the Department of Physics and Astronomy strongly support the graduate student employees of the University of Missouri in their pursuit of the reinstatement of subsidized health insurance. We endorse the list of demands that the graduate students submitted to Dr. Leona Rubin on August 18, 2015, including employer-funded health insurance, full tuition waivers, and other benefits. The Physics and Astronomy faculty supports the students in their proposed walkout scheduled for Wednesday, August 26, 2015, and will not impose any sanctions on students who participate.”
