UW Town-Hall Meeting Tuesday on Enrollment, Other Issues

March 20, 2017

University of Wyoming employees are invited to learn more about UW’s Strategic Enrollment Management Plan, and hear updates on a variety of issues, during a town-hall meeting Tuesday, March 21, from 3-5 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

The town-hall meeting is being combined with UW President Laurie Nichols’ annual spring faculty meeting.

UW employees are granted release time from 2:45-5 p.m. to attend. The scheduling of release time should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit.

The meeting will be streamed online via the WyoCast system at https://wyocast.uwyo.edu/WyoCast/Play/91b0c81719624ec19f4ebed5ec4ddde91d.

The town-hall meeting will begin with a report on the work of UW’s 46-member Strategic Enrollment Management Task Force which, in consultation with Huron Consulting Group, has developed UW’s Strategic Enrollment Management Plan. The plan will guide the university’s efforts to recruit, retain and graduate undergraduates for the next five years.

Provost Kate Miller will discuss work being done to implement the plan, including formation of several working groups, as well as the timeline for implementation.

“This effort will require coordination and collaboration across our Office of Admissions, colleges and departments, our marketing and institutional communications group, and our faculty,” Miller says. “For us to succeed, we will all need to embrace and lead new approaches to recruiting students and guiding them once they come to campus, so that each achieves their educational goals.”

The second half of the town-hall meeting will include:

-- An update on strategic planning and academic program reviews by Miller.

-- A review of the 2017 legislative session by Vice President for Governmental and Community Affairs Chris Boswell.

-- An update on the 2017-18 fiscal year budget reduction plan and the Wyoming Excellence Fund by Nichols, Vice President for Administration Bill Mai and David Jewell, associate vice president for budgeting and fiscal planning.

-- An update on the implementation of WyoCloud, the university’s new cloud-based finance, administrative, research support and business intelligence reporting system.

-- A report on UW’s sexual assault prevention campaign, by Dean of Students Sean Blackburn.

-- And updates on the search for a chief diversity officer, by College of Health Sciences Associate Dean David Jones; the search for a vice president for research and economic development, by College of Engineering and Applied Science Dean Michael Pishko; the search for a vice president for student affairs, by Vice President for Information Technology Robert Aylward and College of Arts and Sciences Dean Paula Lutz; and the search for a dean of the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, by the provost.

A question-and-answer session also is planned.
