The second of a series of public forums to invite dialogue in the University of Missouri's search for its next president will be conducted on Monday, March 12, in St. Louis. The forum will be held from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Room 126 of the J.C. Penney Building on the campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

St. Louis area curators scheduled to attend Monday's forum include Cheryl Walker, who serves as Board vice chair, and Marion Cairns and David Wasinger. They are to be joined by Jerry Baker, the veteran international executive recruiter retained to lead the presidential search.
