University of Missouri
University of Missouri

From budget cuts to racial tensions to declining enrollment, running the University of Missouri System has its share of challenges. Today, we speak with the system's president, Dr. Mun Choi, about the climate on the Columbia campus, further dialog on diversity and how budget decisions are made when it comes to program and staff reductions.  Also, we ask Dr. Choi for his prognosis on the proposed Downtown Campus for the Artsat the University of Missouri - Kansas City.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
