University of Missouri System President Elson Floyd announced the appointment of a search committee to help select the 16th chancellor of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Former Chancellor Martha Gilliland resigned in December after faculty organizations expressed concerns with her leadership and plans for the school.
The 21-member committee will meet early this month and plans to select a chancellor by Sept. 1, a release said. Members include faculty, students and alumni, as well as the executive search firm of Greenwood & Associates.
“I am anticipating that an outstanding pool of candidates will be seeking this position,” Floyd said in the release, “and I am counting on this committee to help us bring the best chancellor to this campus and this city.”
Members include chairman David Atkinson, arts and sciences; David Achtenberg, law; Lee Bolman, business and public administration; Bruce Bubacz, arts and sciences; Loyce Caruthers, education; Burton Dunbar, arts and sciences; David Eick, dentistry; Marjorie Fonza, nursing; Kathleen Kilway, arts and sciences; Kelly Limpic, human resources; Trish Marken, pharmacy; Christopher Papasian, medicine.
Other members are Woody Cozad, UMKC trustee; Geoff Gerling, president of the student government association and Carol Grimaldi, businesswoman.
