After nearly 20 years on university staff, a staff member is taking over the University of Missouri’s budget.  The current Budget Director Tim Rooney is retiring at the end of the year. Beginning January 1 of next year, Rhonda Gibler will take over as the new Budget Director for MU.

“I see myself as a servant leader," Gibler said. "I want to be of service to the state and to the students and others that benefit from what the university does every day. And I think my talents map well with what this position requires.”
