Update: Helping the Joplin Relief Effort
Students, faculty and staff on all four of the UM System campuses and throughout the system administration and auxiliaries have joined the relief effort in Joplin after a tornado devastated the city in May. From t-shirt sales to benefit the United Way to volunteer work to clothing and food drives, efforts have continued for weeks to benefit the people of Joplin and their well being. Here is a round-up of stories from the campuses about their contributions:
