New Chancellor Named for University of Missouri-Columbia

COLUMBIA, MO (AP) Alexander Cartwright is the new chancellor for the University of Missouri’s Columbia campus, the first permanent replacement for R. Bowen Loftin, who resigned under pressure in November 2015 amid protests over the school’s handling of racial issues. University of Missouri System’s president says the new chancellor of the flagship campus in Columbia is the right person to lead the school as it faces challenges that are “very urgent and compelling.”

System President Mun Choi made his comment Wednesday while introducing Cartwright, who was State University of New York provost and executive vice chancellor. Cartwright said he’ll press for partnerships and “strive for inclusive excellence” at the school that has grappled in recent years with racial acrimony.

Cartwright will be tasked with addressing the school’s lingering racial discord, which administrators have partly blamed for slumping enrollment and revenue.
