When it comes to faculty advisers, Bill Horner has been the go-to guy in political science. Every few years, the MU professor says he has been approached by members of a student organization seeking a faculty adviser. Horner says it started about a dozen years ago, when a student asked him to be the faculty adviser for Mizzou’s Model United Nations (UN) organization. A few years later, students participating in Model UN asked Horner if he’d also be willing to be the faculty adviser for the debate team, and he agreed.
