During its regular meeting on Jan. 27, 2006 at the University of Missouri-Columbia, the UM Board of Curators voted 9-0 to approve the following resolution proposed by Curator Doug Russell of Lebanon:

“The Board of Curators of the University of Missouri appreciates Governor Matt Blunt’s Lewis & Clark Discovery Initiative, which would explore creating a public-private partnership that will reap the maximum value from the sale of the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority (MOHELA), and invest the proceeds to the benefit of Missouri higher education.”
