Three things to watch for at this week’s Board of Curators meeting

One significant topic of discussion will be the search for the next UM System president.

The UM System Board of Curators will meet this Thursday and Friday at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla. Here are the most important things they’ll discuss:

Presidential search qualifications

Following public forums held on each of the four UM System campuses, the curators will release a statement on the desired qualifications of the next UM System president following a closed search committee meeting.

Chairman and president’s report

Board of Curators Chairwoman Pam Henrickson and interim President Mike Middleton will both give reports on the state of the UM System. On Monday, Middleton and Henrickson spoke to members of House Special Committee on Urban Issues about diversity at MU.

Degree and renovation approvals

The curators will vote on the addition of a new master’s program in Applied Behavioral Analysis at MU. They will also vote on an expansion and renovation project for the MU Teaching Hospital.

The curators have not yet voted on tuition and fees for the 2016–17 school year, and they will not vote on it this week. UM System spokesman John Fougere said he does not know when the curators will vote to approve tuition and fees.
