Haggard steps down from Board of Curators

Judith Haggard resigned Jan. 17 as a member of the University of Missouri Board of Curators for personal reasons, UM System News reported.

In 2007, Haggard was appointed to the board of curators by Gov. Matt Blunt. She served as curator chair in 2010, advocating for the growth of a system-wide, coordinated effort to expand learning opportunities to new and existing students.

“Judy’s passion and enthusiasm for higher education will be greatly missed,” board chair David Bradley said in a statement. “She made it a personal mission to ensure that the University of Missouri remains in the top tier in both research and education and that our campuses provide an affordable education to the state’s citizens so they are equipped with the tools to become contributing members of society.”

Haggard said after her resignation, : “It has been an honor to work on behalf of the four campuses of the University of Missouri System. I am grateful for the privilege to have served the state in this capacity.”
