Curators meet again to discuss UM System president candidates

Thursday, November 3, 2011 | 3:56 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The UM System Board of Curators will meet as the presidential search committee via teleconference Thursday evening.

According to a public notice, curators will move to hold an executive session, similar to October meetings in Kansas City and St. Louis.

UM spokeswoman Jennifer Hollingshead confirmed that curators met with and interviewed potential candidates in St. Louis but will not conduct any interviews during the teleconference Thursday.

At a news conference Oct. 21, board Chairman Warren Erdman said curators hope to narrow the field of candidates to a point that a list of finalists can be presented to the presidential search advisory committee in coming weeks.

"Erdman has indicated the committee might be down to a smaller group of candidates within the next few weeks," Hollingshead said on Tuesday.

Erdman has said there is no timeline for making a decision.
