MU Curators continue search for new president

University of Missouri curators expect to meet behind closed doors today in Columbia to discuss the search for a new president for the four-campus system.

A four-hour executive session This morning kicks off the two-day meeting at Reynolds Alumni Center. Curators are seeking a replacement for former Sprint Next el CEO Gary For see, who resigned in January after nearly three years as president to care for his ill wife.

An outside firm is helping to guide the confidential search process.

General counsel Steve Owens took over for For see on a temporary basis but says he is not interested in the permanent job.
