From the Chancellor: Why WashU Voices?

Since August 9th, our St. Louis community has been gripped by tension and unrest. The events in Ferguson, which began with the tragic death of a young man, continue to have profound impact on each of us personally, our university and the St. Louis region overall. It presents challenges of historic proportions. Through this tragedy, our community has the opportunity to become better and stronger.
