UM curators to announce new president Wednesday
COLUMBIA — The University of Missouri Board of Curators will announce its pick for UM System president at a news conference Wednesday morning.
The position, which governs all four university campuses, has been vacant since racially-charged protests last November triggered the resignation of UM President Tim Wolfe and MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.
Mike Middleton, a law professor at the Columbia campus, is currently serving as interim president.
The conference will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City.
