COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe expects the search for the Columbia campus' next chancellor to differ in at least one key way from the job hunt that led to his hiring.
The former software company executive was the lone finalist before his December 2011 hiring by the university's Board of Curators. This time, it's Wolfe's turn to select Brady Deaton's replacement, and the UM president says he expects an executive search firm to winnow the pool of candidates to a handful of finalists.
Those finalists will also be interviewed by an advisory committee representing faculty, staff, alumni and students from the system's four campuses. Wolfe says he doesn't expect the curators to participate.
Deaton plans to step down in November after nine years as chancellor.
