COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri’s new president returns to his alma mater on Wednesday to officially begin work.

Fifty-three-year-old Tim Wolfe is a former software company executive and 1980 Missouri graduate hired in December. He has spent the past two months visiting the system’s four campuses and working with his predecessor, interim president Steve Owens.

Wolfe is no stranger to Columbia. He’s a graduate of Rock Bridge High School and led the Columbia powerhouse to a state football championship. His father is a retired professor at university’s flagship Columbia campus

A public welcoming reception for Wolfe and his family is planned for Monday, Feb. 20 from 4-6 p.m. at Stotler Lounge in Memorial Union.
