KANSAS CITY — Some of the people vying for the job of leading the four-campus University of Missouri System will interview this week in Kansas City with a search committee.
Board of Curators Chairman Warren Erdman said the pool has been reduced from "well over 100" to about 40.
The Kansas City Star reported that Erdman would not say how many of the candidates will visit Kansas City on Thursday and Friday. He also wouldn't say how many candidates are participating in a second group of interviews next week in St. Louis.
Those having interviews already have had some phone conversations with search members.
The school is looking for a replacement for Gary Forsee. The former Sprint chief executive officer stepped down in January from the UM System job to care for his wife, who has cancer.
