New chancellor named at UMKC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An official from the University of Texas at San Antonio will be the new chancellor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Missouri System President Mun Choi announced Tuesday that C. Mauli Agrawal will take over the UMKC job June 20. He currently is vice president for academic affairs at Texas-San Antonio.

Agrawal replaces Barbara Bichelmeyer, interim chancellor since Leo Morton left UMKC last year.

Agrawal has been interim provost at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Previously, he was vice president of research and dean of the university's engineering college. He earned a doctorate from Duke University in 1989, a master's degree from Clemson in 1985 and a bachelor's degree from IIT-Kanpur in India.

Choi said Bichelmeyer will continue to lead several new initiatives at UMKC in the meantime.
