According to our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Missouri Board of Curators will finalize Choi’s hiring Monday afternoon, with an official announcement coming on Wednesday.
Mike Middleton, the University of Missouri’s former deputy chancellor, had been serving as interim president. The Mizzou system is compromised of four schools: the University of Missouri (Columbia), the University of Missouri (Kansas City), the University of Missouri (St. Louis), and the Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Choi would succeed Timothy Wolfe, who resigned in November 2015.
Prior to being named provost in 2012, Choi served as UConn’s dean of the engineering and was a professor of mechanical engineering.
