Dating to 1999, UWyo Magazine has highlighted the remarkable individuals and endeavors at the University of Wyoming. In an effort to continue to provide a higher caliber publication, and increase distribution, UWyo has transitioned to the leadership of Institutional Marketing from Institutional Communications.
Through a partnership with the UW Foundation, Institutional Marketing will provide three consistent editions a year: January, May, and September. Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, the Office of Research and Economic Development, the Office of the President, and a renewed External Advisory Committee will provide additional guidance and leadership.
As higher education communication platforms continue to evolve, and readers increasingly turn to online sources for their latest news, features, and profiles, UWyo will accommodate the needs of a growing and increasingly tech-savvy audience. Developments include design and content improvements, the inclusion of external advertising, and a dynamic interactive website.
Coverage of extraordinary individuals and endeavors — such as traversing the rim of the world's largest lava lake in pursuit of lifesaving answers (pg 8), developing global leaders and lifelong partnerships (pg 22), and crossing borders to offer humanitarian aid (pg 28) — reflect the high impact stories UWyo will deliver.
As the director of Institutional Marketing, I am proud to present the first edition under our leadership. With an extensive background in marketing and communications, I am excited about the initial and pending changes. Throughout this evolution, I welcome your feedback and suggestions to further enhance and expand the potential of UWyo.
Director, Institutional Marketing
