University of Missouri to pay $100,000 for group to search for new chancellor

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri will pay a southern California search firm $100,000 to guide the hiring process for the next chancellor of its Columbia campus.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates of suburban Los Angeles will screen prospective candidates to succeed Chancellor Brady Deaton, who is retiring in November. His replacement will be chosen by the university's Board of Curators and system President Tim Wolfe.

The California company's recent work includes the chancellor search at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and presidential searches at Carnegie Mellon and California State University, Los Angeles.

As with its recent presidential searches, Missouri won't disclose the names of finalists. Wolfe has set two meetings this week to solicit comments on desired qualifications for the next MU chancellor.
