Presidential Search Committee meets behind closed doors

KANSAS CITY — The UM System Board of Curators began its meetings in Kansas City on Wednesday night, a day earlier than expected.

Curators met at The Raphael Hotel in Kansas City acting as the Presidential Search Committee. The curators immediately voted to move into a closed-door executive session — as scheduled on the meeting's public notice.

Before moving to close the meeting, Board Chairman Warren Erdman said the committee would be doing routine business, and no action would be taken.

The meeting is strictly in the capacity of the Presidential Search Committee, UM System spokeswoman Jennifer Hollingshead said, so the board will not discuss other issues related to the system, such as conference realignment.

All curators were in attendance, as well as the UM System vice president for human resources, Betsy Rodriguez, and student representative to the board, Laura Confer.

The curators will meet for their regularly scheduled full board meeting at the University of Missouri-Kansas City following the conclusion of the Presidential Search Committee's meeting.
