The University of Missouri is facing considerable scrutiny today after an ESPN report on it's program Outside the Lines alleged that a former Mizzou swimmer was sexually assaulted by a Tiger football player, with no investigation by the University. 
University System President Tom Wolfe has requested an independent investigation into the school's handling of the case, in which swimmer Sasha Menu Courey claimed she was assaulted by a football player in 2010.   According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, university officials say they knew nothing of the alleged sexual attack until late 2012.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri has a new chancellor for its flagship campus in Columbia.

 

University system President Tim Wolfe plans to announce the new hire at a Thursday morning news conference. The campus leader will replace Brady Deaton, who retired in November after nine years as chancellor.

 

The university hired an executive search firm to help recruit candidates for the confidential search. An 18-member advisory committee representing faculty, staff, alumni and students interviewed an unspecified number of finalists.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - An elaborate $10,000 Bible that includes gold accents and exotic German paper has been donated to the main library at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The Columbia Missourian reports that the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible is one of only 400 created by illustrator and designer Barry Moser of Hatfield, Mass. Ellis Library special collections head Alla Barabtarlo says the 1996 Bible is "astonishing" and "beautiful."

It was donated by New York City businessman Bruce Kovner and arrived at the library in August.

Right now, the Bible is being kept in a climate-controlled room. But it's expected to be moved downstairs by Christmas for a new exhibit, "Verba Sacra," or sacred words in Latin. The exhibit will detail the history of the scriptures through the ages.
