COLUMBIA — Two former U.S. senators plan to join campus leaders Monday afternoon as MU announces what's being called a "major" gift.

Former Republican senators Kit Bond and Jack Danforth plan to attend a 5 p.m. news conference. A university news release says there will be a "major announcement" about a gift to benefit both the university and the state.

Columbia campus Chancellor Brady Deaton and Board of Curators chairman Warren Erdman are also expected to attend.
