If you’re curious how petty the conflicts can sink on college campuses, consider some of the childish grievances called into the University of Missouri’s anonymous complaint and compliance hotline last year. Such as this one, which is still pending in the ivory towers: “Allegation that a UM System employee sent negative information to an external party about an individual’s spouse at the time when the external party was considering the spouse for a volunteer position.” Meee-OW! The Columbia Daily Tribune’s higher education reporter Janese Silvey got records of the anonymous hotline complaint reports and resolutions through a Missouri Sunshine Law request, which is probably like pulling teeth with the secretive university culture.

    Unfortunately, these seemingly petty conflicts and false allegations often explode into legal issues that take down innocent parties and destroy lives. Innocent until proven guilty is no longer part of our culture, inside or outside the courtroom or the board room.
