COLUMBIA — The University of Missouri is officially looking for a new chancellor. And it might not have to go far to find it.

Interim chancellor Hank Foley has thrown his hat in the ring to help lead the university, after being in charge for roughly a year already.

There will be a search committee put in place to represent the different levels of power in the UM system, including students, faculty, staff and alumni. The committee will narrow the race down to finalists, eventually turning the list over to Choi for the final decision.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing is find the absolute best individual, best possible person to be the next chancellor, that's why we're engaging in a nationwide search," University of Missouri Spokesman John Fougere said.

The process is expected to take months to complete, and the next chancellor will not be named until after Choi takes office in March 2017.
