Friday, July 12, 2013 | 4:48 p.m. CDT; updated 4:46 p.m. CDT, Saturday, July 13, 2013

COLUMBIA — MU students, staff, faculty and other members of the public can provide input on what qualities they would like to see in a new chancellor in one of two, hour-long public forums. 

The input will be used to create a profile of the ideal candidate to succeed Chancellor Brady Deaton, who is retiring in November.

The first forum will be at 10 a.m. July 22 at Jesse Auditorium in Jesse Hall. The second will be at 10 a.m. July 25 at Jesse Wrench Auditorium in Memorial Union. 

University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe will be in attendance. The events are sponsored by the Faculty Council, Staff Advisory Council, Missouri Students Association and Graduate Professional Council. 

Stakeholders can also submit feedback on Twitter using the hashtag #musearch or tweeting to @umprez. The system also set up an online form for submissions. 

 Supervising editor is Elizabeth Brixey.
