The Chancellors of the four University of Missouri System campuses issued the following statement in support of Interim President Gordon Lamb’s statement regarding the Cures without Cloning Amendment initiative.
“We strongly support University of Missouri System Interim President Gordon Lamb’s recent statement in defense of academic freedom. It is essential we ensure an atmosphere in the state that stimulates intellectual inquiry. If our students are to be prepared to compete in a global economy, if our state is to be competitive nationally and in the world, and if our research is to be the powerful engine driving Missouri’s economy, then our universities must be free to generate and transmit knowledge, within the law, unfettered by outside constraints and particular interests.”
