UW in the News

September 5, 2017

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:

The massive flooding in Houston, Texas, will have an impact on gas prices, but is not likely to spread as far as Wyoming, UW economist Rob Godby told The Casper Star-Tribune. He said price hikes will hit mainly the Southeast.

The Laramie Boomerang reported on UW’s move-in day last week with the largest freshman class in the university’s history expected this fall. Chad Baldwin, UW associate vice president for communications and marketing, was interviewed by KGWN TV about the increase in enrollment.

Baldwin also spoke with Sheridan Media about a unanimous vote from the UW Board of Trustees approving “Breaking Through 2017-2022: A Strategic Plan for the University of Wyoming” during its July meeting.

Stephen Feldman, a UW constitutional law professor, was interviewed by The Wyoming Tribune Eagle about the number of states that have added sexual orientation and gender identity to their nondiscrimination laws.

KGWN TV posted, on its website, UW’s release noting that the new High Bay Research Facility was recently recognized by a construction industry publication as the best 2017 higher education/research project in a four-state region.

UW veterinary scientists are working on a test that will differentiate two types of brucellosis, a disease that has caused concern among cattle ranchers in Wyoming, according to Wyoming Public Radio.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported that UW police officers are going throughout campus to get to know students through the adopt-a-cop program, in which officers meet with student organizations and act as their contacts in the police department.

The UW Outdoor Program, designed to introduce students to a variety of outdoor activities, is celebrating its 20th year, according to The Boomerang.

The Boomerang previewed comedian John Mulaney’s appearance at UW this week.

UW and the seven community colleges will play a critical role in helping the state with diversifying the economy, according to the preliminary report issued last week by the ENDOW Executive Council, reported The Tribune Eagle.

The Boomerang noted that UW officials took Hill and Crane halls “offline” in anticipation of a 10-year housing study and plan that could call for the demolition of Hill and Crane halls.

Joanne Steane, Student Health Service director, discussed with The Boomerang how UW students can eat healthy during the school year. Amy Bey, UW Residence Life and Dining Services dietitian, also was interviewed for the article.
