After a decade of unprecedented growth, Buchanan tells O'Gara in the interview that UW is getting noticed nationally for its programs in energy, agriculture and even the arts. Buchanan points to the NCAR supercomputer, the new School of Energy Resources and the Hathaway scholarships as key elements in attracting more students and more qualified faculty from around the world.
Buchanan also discusses the university's ambitions for the future. Among the priorities for funding at the Legislature this winter are additional buildings and salary increases for staff.
