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 2011 death, noting that his own daughter is a first-year college athlete.

He told reporters that he wants to move with “lightning speed” in assessing the adequacy of campus mental health programs in light of potential problems connected to Menu Courey’s suicide.

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 her death as well as claims of a sexual assault by several football players when she was a freshman.
