KANSAS CITY - The committee that'll help search for a new president of the University of Missouri system will include representatives from each of the system's four campuses.

The system's governing board of curators signed off on Wednesday in Kansas City, Missouri, on the panel that will assist them in finding the successor to Tim Wolfe.

Wolfe and the Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin of the Columbia campus resigned November 9 in the midst of protests over what some saw as university leadership's indifference to racial issues.

Joining curators on the search committee will be a Kansas City student, two faculty members from Columbia and St. Louis, and a Rolla staffer.

Former University of Missouri football player and strength coach Pat Ivey separately was named to be the Columbia campus' assistant vice chancellor for inclusion, diversity and equity.
