UW Names Graduate Education AVP Finalists

July 26, 2017

After an extensive and informative internal search process, finalists for the position of associate vice president for graduate education at the University of Wyoming have been identified.

They are Bret Hess, professor of Animal Science, associate dean for research and director of the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station; James Ahern, professor and head of the Department of Anthropology; and Scott Miller, professor and head of the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management.

“We thank the campus community for their support throughout the process, especially those who submitted nominations and those who applied,” the search committee says. “The impressive strength of the applicant pool demonstrates the value UW faculty place on graduate education.”

One-day, on-campus interviews for the candidates are being scheduled between Aug. 3-11. Details about the interviews, including public presentation times and instructions for faculty, staff and students to provide feedback, will be released in coming days. All public presentations will be captured using UW’s WyoCast system, which will allow near-real-time viewing as well as archiving for later viewing for those unavailable to attend.
