Missouri S&T faculty calls for same-sex benefits

Friday, April 27, 2012 | 9:58 a.m. CDT

ROLLA — Professors at the Missouri University of Science and Technology have approved a resolution calling for benefits for same-sex partners of university employees.

Professor Susan Murray said she hopes Thursday's vote at the Rolla campus will send a message to the University of Missouri System Board of Curators that the benefits should be available on all system campuses.

The faculty council at MU and faculty groups at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the University of Missouri-Kansas City approved similar resolutions two years ago. Student groups on all four campuses have also supported offering the benefits.

UM System President Tim Wolfe has said he plans to make a recommendation on the issue to the curators by the end of the year, according to previous Missourian reports.
