Grand Jury Announcement Faculty & Staff Students

Message to West Campus Employees

To West Campus Employees:

We have been closely monitoring events in Clayton since last night’s announcement of the grand jury’s decision in the case of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Based on the most reliable current information, and with the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff top of mind, the decision has been made to reopen West Campus tomorrow, Wednesday, November 26.

We would like to thank our West Campus employees, and the entire university community, for remaining flexible as we have navigated an unusual and challenging situation. Please know that we continue to monitor the situation closely and will respond accordingly to ensure that our campuses remain safe and secure.

Any further information that may affect university operations will be shared directly with appropriate members of the university community through email and other channels. Updates also are available on, and, as always, emergency information will be shared on

Henry S. Webber
Executive Vice Chancellor for Administration
