Missouri officials are preparing to award nine grants worth nearly $9 million to create so-called "Innovation Campuses" involving colleges and universities.
The program pairs universities and colleges with businesses to train students for jobs in high-demand fields. It's partly aimed at helping students earn their degrees faster and graduate with less debt.
Gov. Jay Nixon planned to discuss the grants Wednesday at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri State University in Springfield and Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.
Opponents of the University of Missouri's decision to revamp its academic publishing business plan to meet to discuss their next steps.
Organizers of Tuesday's meeting say the school's plans to replace the press with a digital publishing operation that will rely largely on student workers will provide a poor substitute for the traditional university press model. Some members of the Columbia campus chapter of the American Association of University Professors are scheduled to meet with university system president Tim Wolfe later Tuesday.

Anglers and conservation officials have been concerned about declining blue catfish catches from Truman Reservoir for two decades and more recently from the Lake of the Ozarks. Both lakes have at least adequate numbers of smaller blue catfish but heavy fishing for those 24 inches and larger is keeping sizes smaller. The two lakes are formed by separate dams on the Osage River.
