Provost Announces New Director for University of Missouri Press
COLUMBIA (AP) - The University of Missouri has named a new director for the University Press, which nearly shut down last year.
Provost Brian Foster announced Friday that David Rosenbaum, director of product development and project management for the American Heart Association, will become director of the 55-year-old academic publishing house on Nov. 1.
The university says Rosenbaum has more than 15 years of experience in the publishing industry and also has written three books.
Administrators announced plans in May 2012 to close the Press but reversed course after the decision was strongly criticized in the publishing community and by several authors.
The Missouri Press is now part of the Columbia campus rather than the university system.
