The search for a new chancellor at the University of Missouri-Rolla is in the final stage, a release from UMR said.

Names of the three finalists have not been released, but all have an engineering background and one is president of another university, the release said.

Elson Floyd, president of University of Missouri System, said he expected to select a new chancellor over the next several weeks.

The new chancellor will succeed Chancellor Gary Thomas, whose five-year contract expires Aug. 31.
