UW in the News

July 11, 2016

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.

The Denver News Channel and ABCTell used stock footage of UW’s campus to explain presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plan to provide free in-state tuition at public colleges for families with income up to $125,000. The segment noted that UW has the cheapest in-state tuition in the nation.

UW Department of Computer Science Assistant Professor Jeff Clune talked with Motherboard, the website devoted to new technologies, cultures and discoveries, for a piece titled “When Artificial Intelligence Goes Wrong, We Won’t Be Able to Ask It Why.”

Wyoming Public Radio featured this week’s Whole Musician retreat on the UW campus. The retreat, for amateur and professional musicians from around the world, helps musicians reconnect with the sense of wonder and creativity that they felt when they first began playing, according to organizers.

UW is offering retirement incentives for certain employees as part of a plan to cut $35 million from the budget ending in 2018, reported The Casper Star-Tribune and The Laramie Boomerang.

The Boomerang also reported that a UW revenue committee will soon be tasked with finding places where more money could be found to help with the budget crisis.

Erin Campbell-Stone, a UW Department of Geology and Geophysics lecturer, helped with a capstone course in which students mapped areas of the Bighorn Mountains, noted The Sheridan Press.

Sheridan Media noted the 125-year history of the UW Agricultural Experiment Station during last week’s Sheridan Research and Extension Center field day.

In a reversal, Gov. Mead will continue to fund a state program that provides tuition assistance for veterans, surviving spouses and dependents, Global Affairs, The Boomerang and KOWB Radio reported. The tuition will be applied at UW and Wyoming’s community colleges.

The Boomerang featured Pistol and Pete, two Haflinger horses, as part of UW’s Agricultural Experiment Station’s 125th celebration.

UW Extension Educator Bridger Feuz told Cattle Business Weekly that the beef industry is undergoing a downward trend in the market that could last a few years.

The Denver Post reported that former UW Cowboy Mason Finley won the Olympic Trials discus event and will represent the U.S. at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro next month.
