A 19-member evaluation committee meets in St. Louis this week to evaluate the finalists in the search for a new University of Missouri priesident. The search committee met in secret last Friday but members have refused to say if they’ve picked the finalists in the contest to replace Elson Floyd.

The advisory panel will report back to the search committee, which is the curators and a student representative to the board. No timetable has been announced for making a final decision.
