Trustees Seek Comment on Presidential Profile and Announcement

The Presidential Search Planning Committee has released drafts of two documents, the presidential profile and the position announcement, for public review and comment.

The documents will be used by the search consulting firm in the search for the University of Wyoming's next President. The Board of Trustees is accepting public comment through July 3, 2015. The final version of the documents, taking into account the public comments, will be presented to the Board for final approval at their July 14-17 meeting.

The two documents can be found here and here. If you would like to provide comment, please click the comments section of this website or email the committee at UW.Presidential.Search@uwyo.edu




UW Board of Trustees Approves Presidential Search Process and Timeline

At their June meeting, the UW Board of Trustees officially adopted the process and timeline they will use in the search for the next President of the University of Wyoming. That process will include:

  • hiring a search consulting firm;
  • using a search recruiter;
  • assembling two search committees to review the applicants; and
  • selecting and announcing the next President by late February 2016.


A search consulting firm is to be selected and begin advertising for the position by August, and applications will be due by December 1. At that time, the two search committees will review the applications and recommend finalists to the Board of Trustees.

The two search committees will each be comprised of five Trustees, two faculty members, two staff members, two students, one UW Foundation Board member, and two external members.

As previously announced, the names of the finalists will be made public and the finalists will visit the University of Wyoming to meet with various constituent groups. The names of the applicants will remain confidential until the finalist stage.

The Presidential Search Planning Committee is still welcoming public input regarding the search. If you would like to provide comment, please click the comments section of this website or email the committee at UW.Presidential.Search@uwyo.edu




UW Board of Trustees Approves Three Motions to Move Forward in Presidential Search

At their May meeting, the UW Board of Trustees voted to approve three motions related to the Presidential Search, as follows:

  • the names of the finalists in the presidential search will be made public;
  • the finalists will be brought to the University of Wyoming campus, and possibly other areas in the state, to meet with various constituent groups; and
  • the membership and mission of the Presidential Search Planning Committee was extended.


Trustee Dave Bostrom was added to the committee, whose membership now includes:

               John MacPherson, Saratoga (Chair)
               Mel Baldwin, Afton
               Dave Bostrom, Worland
               Mike Massie, Laramie
               Jeff Marsh, Torrington

The committee has been tasked with developing a proposal to address the use of a search consultant, the makeup of committees to evaluate applicants, timelines for the search, and other details. Their proposal will be presented to the full Board of Trustees at the June 15 meeting.

The committee is still welcoming public input regarding these matters. If you would like to provide comment, please click the comments section of this website or email the committee at UW.Presidential.Search@uwyo.edu
