MU to Bring Search for New President to Bootheel

FEBRUARY 27, 2007 - Posted at 3:07 p.m. CST

 

COLUMBIA, MO - The names of possible candidates for the University of Missouri's next president probably won't be made public.

But university curators say they plan to travel the state next month to seek the public's help in choosing the next leader of the four-campus system.

The forums are designed to allow the nine curators to visit with citizens about the search process.

University system president Elson Floyd plans to leave Missouri in May for a similar position at Washington State University.  The curators have hired an Atlanta-based executive search firm to guide the recruitment process.

A series of six public forums begins next week in the Bootheel, on March 6 at the Delta Research Center in Portageville, from 1-2:30 p.m.

Other forums are planned throughout the rest of March in St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, Rolla and Springfield.
