As a refugee from Bosnia, Senad Music knows firsthand how difficult it is to get acclimated to a new culture. He says when he came to America 16 years ago he found it difficult to adapt to the culture, and he is trying to make the transition easier for newer refugees. On a recent weekend at Columbia's World Refugee Day, that means manning the grill during the World Refugee Celebration.
“My mission today is kind of cook food, you know, be on the grill, and welcome people from the community and other refugees," said Music.
UM Board of Curators Chair David Bradley says he is open to public input about the University of Missouri Press.
Dozens of supporters of the UM Press showed up during a Board of Curator’s public meeting on Tuesday. Some stayed until the end, but never got a chance to make their comments. Bradley says although he wasn’t aware of the gathering until just before the meeting, he is open to public input in the future.
