College of Agriculture Name Change


December 7, 2009 — The College of Agriculture at the University of Wyoming has a new name.

The UW Board of Trustees voted Nov. 20 to change the college's name to the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Dean Frank Galey had obtained favorable comments about renaming the college at meetings around the state and from commodity groups. Galey also polled college faculty members and academic professionals. More than 90 percent approved the change in name.

"Our agriculture is completely interwoven into natural resource issues important to the state and its land and people," says Galey. "The college name change will help attract students and other interested folks who are passionate about the land and rural communities but may not have seen themselves under a more traditional name and rubric."
