The nearly year-long process to replace University of Missouri System president Gary Forsee is nearing its conclusion.
Interim System president Stephen Owens sent out an email this morning saying that Tuesday is the day and that the announcement will be made at the Reynolds Alumni Center on the grounds of the System's flagship campus in Columbia at 10 a.m.
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.
