UW in the News

March 19, 2012

State, national and international media frequently feature the University of Wyoming and members of its community in stories. Here is a summary of some of the recent articles where UW is making the news.

In a Richmond Times-Dispatch interview linking low unemployment rates to the majority of the nation’s Republican governors, Anne Alexander, UW International Programs director and economist, discussed why Wyoming’s economy is strong, citing minerals and tourism as key, and not because of one political party holding the governor’s position. She also spoke with Sheridan about international aspects of the economy and how they relate to the state.

Several media outlets carried an Associated Press story taken from UW’s news release about a new mobile app available to UW students and employees.

The web-based science and technology news site,, carried UW’s news release about a biotechnology company formed by UW Physics and Astronomy Professor Paul Johnson. It also carried UW’s release about Professor Adrian Feiguin’s research to produce materials used in electronic devices -- such as cell phones and iPads -- more efficiently.

K2 Radio was among media outlets carrying UW’s release about the groundbreaking ceremony for the joint Casper College/UW building.

Wyoming’s health care needs and a nursing shortage were topics discussed by UW College of Health Sciences Dean Joe Steiner and Mary Burman, dean of the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, in a Casper Star-Tribune article.
