UM curators end private meeting about new president search

KANSAS CITY — The governing board for the University of Missouri System has ended a private meeting about its search for a new president.

After Thursday's closed meeting of the UM System Board of Curators, Chairman Warren Erdman said no announcement about the presidential search was planned.

The board is searching for a permanent replacement for Gary Forsee, who stepped down in January to care for his ill wife. Acting President Steve Owens has said he's not interested in the job.

The curators had their meeting about the presidential search at a hotel on the Country Club Plaza before reconvening for an open meeting on the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus.
