The University of Missouri plans to announce its next chancellor on December 5th, in the Donald W. Reynolds Alumni Center.
Former chancellor Brady Deaton retired on November 15th, and had served as chancellor of the university for 9 years. Many faculty members anxiously await the announcement of the new chancellor, especially those who have worked under multiple chancellors.
Professor of Biochemistry Frank Schmidt said he’s seen two types of chancellors at MU over the years.
As the search to replace retiring MU Chancellor Brady Deaton begins, a public forum held in MU’s Jesse Hall Monday allowed people to tell UM System leaders what they want to see in a future chancellor. It was the first of two public forums held on MU’s campus this week.
A handful of MU faculty, staff, and students voiced their opinions at the hour-long forum. They discussed what they thought should be required of the next chancellor, and what key areas of strength he or she should have.
