MU Takes Steps to Find New President
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A panel of University of Missouri curators plans to meet behind closed doors as the four-campus system's search for a new president continues.
The curators' executive committee has scheduled a noon meeting Monday on the Columbia campus to discuss personnel matters with university lawyers. Out-of-town curators are expected to join the meeting by telephone or through a video conferencing system.
Former university president Gary Forsee stepped down in January to care for his ill wife.
The acting president is former general counsel Steve Owens, who has said he is not interested in a permanent job leading the university system.
