Dear MBU students,
In the wake of the Grand Jury’s decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson and the shooting death of Michael Brown, our hearts continue to go out to everyone impacted. In Scripture God called His people to seek the good of the city where He sent them and to pray for its well being (Jeremiah 29:7). This verse reminds us that God cares for our city. He is the One who can heal us when we pray and seek what is good. We call on the Missouri Baptist University community to do both of these things for Ferguson and the entire St. Louis area. MBU students impacted directly by current events are urged to put their safety and well being first. Those students who are unable to attend classes during the unrest should communicate with their respective faculty member to develop an appropriate plan. As always, MBU’s Public Safety officers will remain on duty 24 hours a day, and will be closely monitoring the campus during the upcoming Thanksgiving break. If you have questions, you may contact the main switchboard at 314-434-1115, the Office of Student Development at 314-392-2212, or Public Safety at 314-882-1601.
Dr. Andy Chambers,
Senior Vice President for Student Development and Associate Provost
