University of Missouri presidential search continues

University of Missouri curators will meet behind closed doors Monday night for the second time in two weeks as they continue to search for a new system president.

The governing boards' Presidential Search Committee is scheduled to meet at University Hall in Columbia and by teleconference for out-of-town curators. The search committee meetings are closed to the public.

Curators' chairman Warren Erdman said in October that he expected the board to soon narrow the presidential search to an unspecified number of finalists.

Those finalists will be interviewed by a 20-member advisory panel.

The Board of Curators is seeking a replacement for former President Gary Forsee, who stepped down in January to care for his wife as she battles cancer.
