Missouri names new interim head of graduate studies
COLUMBIA (AP) — The University of Missouri has named a new interim vice chancellor for graduate studies.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reported interim Chancellor Hank Foley on Wednesday named Mark McIntosh as interim vice chancellor for research, graduate studies and economic development.
The university said McIntosh was professor and chairman of the Department of Molecular Biology and Immunology and associate vice chancellor for research and strategic initiatives.
McIntosh's new job includes roles Foley held before his appointment as interim chancellor to replace former Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. Loftin announced his resignation last week along with UM System President Tim Wolfe amid student protests over concerns about how the university handled racial issues.
Foley said McIntosh will work to repair administration relations with graduate students
