    UW Giving Day Breaks Records While Bringing People Together

    The power of community resulted in a history-making UW Giving Day, an annual philanthropic tradition of the University of Wyoming.

    A total of 6,293 donors from all 50 states and 10 countries gave a total of $4,107,408 -- funds that will go directly to support students and programs across UW. Giving Day is spearheaded by the UW Foundation and took place Oct. 19-20, noon to noon, during Homecoming week. It was online, across social media and across campus.

    This year’s theme was “The Big Give.” Students, faculty and staff stepped up to create more campaigns than ever, and donors stepped up in record numbers to support them. UW colleges, units, programs and student groups created 159 crowdfunding campaigns that inspired almost twice the number of donors than last year.

    UW Petroleum Professor Appointed to Le Norman Chair

    Dr. Vamegh Rasouli, a professor with expertise in petroleum engineering, has been announced as the University of Wyoming Le Norman Endowed Leadership Chair in Petroleum Engineering, starting in the fall of 2022.

    In 2018, the UW College of Engineering and Physical Sciences received a gift of $2.5 million from UW alum David Le Norman, an energy and investment entrepreneur, which established the chair.

    This gift was doubled by Wyoming state matching, bringing the fund to $5 million. These funds were then split to fund the Le Norman Endowed Leadership Chair in Petroleum Engineering and the Le Norman Family Excellence Fund in Petroleum Engineering.

The chair supports John Koprowski, dean of the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.

    This endowed chair is being established to honor the work and accomplishments of Koprowski, this year’s recipient of the prestigious Aldo Leopold Memorial Award -- the highest honor bestowed by The Wildlife Society. Following his retirement, the chair will be renamed as the John L. Koprowski International Wildlife Conservation Chair.
