U. of Missouri executive named to Hopkins post James McGill appointed senior vice president for administration

October 15, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

James T. McGill, executive vice president of the University of Missouri system, has been appointed senior vice president for administration at the Johns Hopkins University, Hopkins officials announced yesterday.

McGill, 54, will take the post Jan. 1 as Hopkins' top financial and business officer and chief adviser to President William R. Brody on nonacademic matters. He succeeds Eugene S. Sunshine, who left Hopkins last summer for a similar position at Northwestern University.

Among his other duties, McGill will oversee reforms enacted to ensure that the university's contracting programs are pure. Recent allegations of kickbacks and fraud in the contracting office have led to an FBI investigation. Two people were fired this year and a third left her job because of the inquiry.

Since 1986, McGill has been responsible for four Missouri campuses and 53,000 students, overseeing finance, budgeting, facilities, endowment investment, human resources and other administrative functions.

For the past two years, he has been the system's second-in-command for daily operations.
