After lengthy fly-in sessions in St. Louis and Kansas City to meet prospective candidates and narrow the list, the head of the University of Missouri Board of Curators will say only that the search for a new system president “is going well.”
Pam Henrickson refrained from giving any more specific information after the curators met at the university’s Kansas City campus on Friday.
“We’re very pleased with our progress so far,” she said. “The candidates have been very exciting.”
The timetable to choose a successor to Tim Wolfe, who resigned last November after racial unrest at MU, calls for the new president to be named by the end of the year, and a university spokesman said the school remains confident it will meet that deadline.
