Those viewing the faculty, staff and Casper forums with each finalist via WyoCast will have the ability to submit questions through that system.

The UW Board of Trustees will interview the three finalists in executive session Thursday, Feb. 27, starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Gateway Center.

During their visits to campus, the finalists also will meet with members of UW’s executive leadership team; deans and directors; Department of Athletics leaders; and others.

The Board of Trustees seeks public input on the candidates before it fulfills its responsibility to select the new president. People are invited to share their thoughts and perspectives with the board by answering online questionnaires that are being established for each finalist at the following sites:

Bowman -- www.surveymonkey.com/r/PLZ2CJM.

Seidel -- www.surveymonkey.com/r/PVDYZBD.

White -- www.surveymonkey.com/r/PVS23HR.

The deadline for input on Bowman and Seidel is 10 p.m. Wednesday. Because people in Casper will not interact with White until Thursday morning, the deadline for input on him is noon Thursday -- although people are encouraged to submit their comments on White by 10 p.m. Wednesday as well.

During the week of March 2, the board may extend an offer to the candidate it selects. The new president is expected to be in office by July 1.
