MSU Changes Course on Program that Excluded White Males

A business boot camp at Missouri State University that originally excluded white males was later offered to everyone “irrespective of their race and/or sex.”

Last week, the equal protection project watchdog group filed a complaint to Attorney General Andrew Bailey, urging him to investigate. The Spring 2023 early-stage business boot camp was first offered exclusively to women and people who identify as BIPOC, an acronym for black, indigenous, and persons of color.

The university says the program, which has concluded, was designed to assist new and aspiring small business owners in establishing and growing their business.
