COLUMBIA — A panel of the UM System Board of Curators plans to meet behind closed doors as the search for a new president continues.
The curators' executive committee has scheduled a noon meeting Monday in Columbia to discuss personnel matters with university lawyers. Out-of-town curators are expected to join the meeting by telephone or through a video conferencing system.
Former UM System President Gary Forsee stepped down in January to care for his ill wife.
The acting president is former general counsel Steve Owens, who has said he is not interested in a permanent job leading the university system.
