MU chancellor to head for India next week

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 | 6:43 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — MU Chancellor Brady Deaton will be leaving next week for a weeklong scientific conference in India.

Deaton's office said Wednesday that the chancellor will be gone Nov. 1 to 9 to attend an international conference on phytochemicals in Agra, India. Deaton is scheduled to give a keynote address on Nov. 4.

Deaton had said Tuesday that it could be "days" or "a week or two" before the school announces a decision on whether to leave the Big 12, presumably for the Southeastern Conference.

His assistant, Ann McGruder, said Wednesday that his departure date isn't likely to drive a decision on conference alignment.
