University of Missouri president Tim Wolfe announced this morning that he will resign from his position. Wolfe’s resignation was spurred on by students, including the football team, who were unsatisfied with his handling of several on-campus incidents of racism.

One graduate student, Jonathan L. Butler, went on a hunger strike that would only end with Wolfe’s resignation. Yesterday, the football team, with the full support of head coach Gary Pinkel, declared that they would go on strike unless Wolfe resigned.
