LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Since its establishment in 1886, the University of Wyoming has seen increases in enrollment, decreases in enrollment, facilities built and torn down again, and tuition change over 1000%, but the past two years have been amongst the hardest. With over 42 million dollars of budget cuts, every person on this campus has felt the squeeze and sacrificed in one way or another. A new financial age has been welcomed to campus, and the world around us changes with rises in student activism and an ever-polarizing climate. With each new challenge that arises, my mind cannot help but remember a proverb referred to by many before me, “May you live in interesting times.” Thankfully, we all know that through tough times Wyoming grit and determination will always rise above. Most importantly, we have welcomed monumental changes and new waves of leadership with our first female President, Dr. Laurie S. Nichols.


Under the leadership of President Nichols, we have brought forth an unprecedented era of community involvement, student engagement, shared governance, and individualized experiences. The path set forth by us has been nothing but historic as she led the charge to develop the University’s new strategic plan. As the University Broke Through the barrier with its first strategic plan, it is time for us to follow suit by Moving Forward.

Starting in September of 2017, the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) Student Government set forth on a long and tiresome process to create a strategic plan we could be proud to call our own.


The goals set forth by the Moving Forward: 2018–2022 will serve to drive all members of the ASUW Student Government in a united direction to recruit, engage, and grow our student body with a sense of community as strong as our Wyoming roots and our dedication to excellence. The goals we have laid forth move to provide effective paths forward to common goals for ASUW. We hope this allows your creativity and initiatives to be a priority while still accomplishing long-term progress.


The University of Wyoming provides us as students a host of opportunities with a world-class education, individualized engagement opportunities, and a community of support unmatched in any state institution. Best of luck to you and your administration, and one note, to change ourselves, and the world around us, we must take these opportunities and push to do one thing: Move forward.

 

Benjamin D. Wetzel

105th ASUW President
