Statement from MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin

February 22nd, 2014

Story Contact: Christian Basi, 573-882-4430,

I am deeply grateful to City of Columbia firefighters and University of Missouri Police Department officers for their rapid response to the incident that occurred early this morning at University Village Apartments. Because of their quick and effective response, no residents were injured, and all are being moved to alternate locations.

The safety and security of our students is our top priority. The University has begun a thorough inspection of all buildings within the University Village Apartment complex.
