Official UCM Statement Regarding Admittance to President Obama Appearance
The University of Central Missouri has thoroughly reviewed claims of individuals being inappropriately denied admission to President Barack Obama’s speech on campus July 24, 2013. These reports are unfounded. No one who presented a ticket was turned away prior to all doors being locked in accordance with Secret Service procedures. We have confirmed everyone who presented a ticket prior to that time was admitted.
