Gordon Lamb to start as interim president July 1 at University of Central Missouri

WARRENSBURG — A former college official has been named to assist the University of Central Missouri through a leadership transition.

The Warrensburg school says Gordon Lamb has agreed to serve for one month as interim president, beginning July 1. After new president Chuck Ambrose begins work Aug. 1, Lamb will work as needed in a temporary advisory capacity.

Lamb is the former interim president of the four-campus University of Missouri System. He also has served as the interim chancellor at the system's Kansas City campus and was president of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago for nearly a decade.

Central Missouri is changing presidents after its governing board voted late last year not to renew Aaron Podolefsky's contract. It expires June 30.
