COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A suspended University of Missouri assistant professor says she wants to keep her job and has been working with a public relations firm to repair her image after becoming nationally known for her run-ins with student journalists during protests at the university.

In a confrontation caught on video last November, Melissa Click called for "some muscle" to remove a student videographer from the protest area on the Columbia campus.

Click was charged with misdemeanor assault, but a Columbia prosecutor says he'll drop the charge if she completes community service.

Click has given several interviews recently and has been working with Status Labs, an online reputation management firm.

She told The Columbia Missourian (http://bit.ly/1Qet5Vo ) she wants to stay at Missouri and that she deserves to be treated fairly.
