University of Missouri Football Team

UPDATED: Monday, November 9, 2015 11:25 AM EST

Tim Wolfe, the president of the University of Missouri, announced his resignation Monday morning.

“My decision to resign comes out of love…not hate,” Wolfe said during the announcement

This is a developing story.

——————

University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe on Sunday acknowledged problems with racism on campus after Black football players vowed to stop playing until he “resigns or is removed due to his negligence toward marginalized students’ experiences.”

“It is clear to all of us that change is needed, and we appreciate the thoughtfulness and passion which have gone into the sharing of concerns,” reads Wolfe’s statement. “My administration has been meeting around the clock and has been doing a tremendous amount of reflection on how to address these complex matters.”

The statement gave no indication of stepping down.

And that may not be enough. A faculty group urged professors to walk out of classes on Monday and Tuesday, as protests ramp up against Wolfe, according to USA Today.

And Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel announced Sunday that his team is “united,” according to ESPN.

The protests come after the Missouri Students Association president, who is Black, and members of the Legion of Black Collegians have been hit with a barrage of racial slurs and attacks. In one case, some smeared a human feces swastika on a dorm bathroom wall.

Student activist Jonathan Butler began a hunger strike on Oct. 26 to protest rampant racism, sexism, and homophobia on campus.

You can see what the students are up against in the tweet below:

We hope the university does more than acknowledge that “change is needed” and actually does something. As the Black Lives Matter movement widens beyond criminal justice, more of these protests are likely to crop up.

Will Wolfe be able to remain at the helm of the university? Sound off…
