Ferguson Commission

Description: Established through an Executive Order from Governor Nixon, the Ferguson Commission is an empowered, independent and diverse group that studies the underlying social and economic conditions underscored by the unrest in the wake of the death of Michael Brown. The charge of the Ferguson Commission is to help chart a new path toward healing and positive change for the residents of the St. Louis region. Faculty and students from the School of Law are extremely involved in the work of the Commission.
