MU Curators Expect to Name New President Nov. 21

St. Louis, MO – University of Missouri curators hope to pick a new president at their November 21st meeting.

Mathes says that, after today's meeting in St. Louis, the curators plan to submit the names of three or four finalists to a
faculty committee.

The committee will do research and conduct more interviews.
