For nearly a decade, Chancellor Brady Deaton and Provost Brian Foster have held the top posts at the University of Missouri flagship campus in Columbia. Now, the University is beginning a significant period of change at the administration level. Chancellor Deaton will retire on November 15th, and Provost Foster will retire at the end of the year, as will the Vice Chancellor of Administrative services and the Vice Chancellor of Research. Deaton and Foster have overseen a significant period of growth and change and the University.
This week on Intersection, we’re hosting an exit interview for these University leaders - to talk about the successes and struggles of their time at MU - and to hear what advice they have for their successors.
Brady Deaton, MU Chancellor
