UW in the News

January 6, 2020

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 coverage:

UW law Professor Michael Duff is quoted in a Bloomberg News story about the potential ramifications of the National Labor Relations Board’s recently issued rule to extend the union election process.

It’s unlikely that coal export capacity on the West Coast will increase anytime soon, UW economist Rob Godby says in an S&P Global article.

Godby also is quoted in articles on the state of the coal industry in S&P Global and the Casper Star-Tribune (CS-T). He’s also a source in a CS-T story about the potential development of wind energy in Wyoming.

The biggest market for carbon dioxide captured by carbon capture technology in coal-burning power plants is for enhanced oil recovery, Godby says in another CS-T article.

UW political scientist Jim King is quoted in an Associated Press story about Wyoming’s 2020 U.S. Senate race.

The Buffalo Bulletin highlighted the work of UW researchers and others in an ongoing study of the health of the Upper Powder River mule deer herd.

Scientists from UW and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department are continuing their research on bighorn sheep in the Jackson region, according to Wyo4News.

Steve Farkas, assistant dean of the UW College of Business, is one of two finalists in a national search for the new CEO of the Wyoming Business Council, according to the Wyoming Business Report.

The Ellis Family Foundation’s $1 million gift to UW to create scholarships for engineering students was noted by the Philanthropy News Digest and Oil City News.

The pilot “Entrepreneurship Essentials” course offered by the UW College of Business and Central Wyoming College was featured in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.

The Tribune Eagle also reported on the new computer science curriculum in Wyoming schools. UW Associate Professor Andrea Burrows helped draft the initial set of new computer science standards.

UW researchers’ efforts to create a niche industry for farmers growing ancient grains were highlighted in an article by the Scottsbluff (Neb.) Star-Herald.
