Statement from Michael Middleton, interim president, University of Missouri System

"I am saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Mel George who served as UM System interim president twice—once post-retirement. His passion for higher education was strong as he provided a constant reminder of the importance of having a respectful campus environment through his “Statement of Values” read at the start of MU Faculty Council meetings during his time as a professor. The UM System will forever be indebted to Mel’s guidance and wisdom during an eventful time in Missouri’s history."
