Video Message from President and Provost
September 19, 2017
As members of our community struggle to reconcile the verdict in the trial of Jason Stockley for the death of Anthony Lamar Smith and responses to it with their values, hopes and dreams, this is a time of uncertainty for many. Webster University President Beth Stroble and Provost Julian Schuster recorded a video message for the community, building upon recent messages to the community about the case and regional reactions to it.
They emphasized the importance of maintaining our sense of community as we work through differences of opinion about this case and others like it, and asked community members to approach this as a time of learning and reflection.
