ST. LOUIS — The UM System Board of Curators is continuing to meet in private with prospective presidents of the four-campus system, this time at a St. Louis airport hotel.

The 10 curators scheduled confidential interviews with an unknown number of candidates Thursday and Friday morning at the airport Marriott. Those sessions come after a similar round of interviews last week at a downtown Kansas City hotel.

The board is seeking a replacement for Gary Forsee, the former Sprint Nextel CEO who resigned in January after nearly three years as president to care for his ill wife. The system's acting president, general counsel Steve Owens, has said he is not interested in the permanent job.
