Timothy M. Wolfe is the 23rd president of the University of Missouri- System — one of the nation’s largest public research university systems, with more than 77,000 students, 30,000 employees and nearly a quarter of a million alumni across the state.

President Wolfe is a leader recognized for recruiting, building and leading successful teams by creating innovative strategies and clear execution plans across complex enterprises.  He has more than 30 years of experience in information technology, infrastructure software, consulting and sales leadership. An alumnus of the University of Missouri-Columbia and Harvard with deep Missouri roots, Mr. Wolfe grew up with the value of higher education instilled in him by his parents — both college professors.  Tim and his wife, Molly, have twins, daughter Madison and son Tyler, who are in their third year of college.

One of President Wolfe’s early priorities as president is raising overall awareness of the unique role the UM System’s four campuses, health care enterprise and extension program play in advancing education, the economy, health, innovation, arts, culture and the overall quality of life across the state of Missouri.
