COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe says the four-campus system is committed to bolstering its mental health services as a separate legal review of a former school swimmer's suicide is expected to soon begin.

Wolfe spoke personally Wednesday about Sasha Menu Courey's death as an MU freshman, noting that his own daughter is a first-year college athlete.

He told reporters that "one of our students is dead. And I don't want to feel that anymore."

The university's Board of Curators is expected to vote later Wednesday on Wolfe's request for an independent report on how the school handled Menu Courey's death and her claims of a sexual assault by several football players.
