University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols will meet with Big Horn Basin residents in Worland Wednesday, May 23.

The reception is 10 a.m.-noon at the Worland Community Center Complex, and the public is invited. Refreshments will be served.

Following that event, Nichols will speak to the Worland Rotary Club and other invited guests at the same location during the club’s regular lunch meeting.

Nichols travels regularly around Wyoming to meet with citizens, community college and public school leaders, legislators, alumni, media and others.

“I enjoy getting around the state to meet with people and hear their thoughts and expectations for Wyoming’s university,” says Nichols, who is completing her second year as UW’s president. “This is a crucial time for the state and the university, and interaction with the public is important to make sure UW fulfills its land-grant mission of education, research and service to the entire state.”

Nichols came to UW from South Dakota State University (SDSU), where she served as provost and executive vice president from 2009 to 2016. Before that, she was dean of the SDSU College of Education and Human Sciences from 1994 to 2008. She began her career in higher education as a member of the faculty of the University of Idaho from 1988 to 1994.

Nichols was born and raised in South Dakota. A first-generation college graduate, she received a bachelor’s degree in education from South Dakota State in 1978. She then earned a master’s degree in vocational and adult education from Colorado State University in 1984 and a Ph.D. in family and consumer sciences education from Ohio State University in 1988.
