A reorganization of the University of Wyoming’s academic programs is proceeding on schedule, including the selection of new names for two colleges.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science is now the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences; and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is now the College of Agriculture, Life Sciences and Natural Resources.
No name change has yet been established for the College of Arts and Sciences. Further discussion is anticipated over the coming year.
“We appreciate the work of the faculty and various stakeholders to help develop names for the colleges that will appropriately identify them in accordance with the restructuring that is taking place,” Provost and Executive Vice President Kevin Carman says. “There is much work still to do, but we are making good progress on the restructuring to position the university for the future.”
The restructuring, approved by the UW Board of Trustees last year, generally involves reorganizing the College of Arts and Sciences and the former colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Engineering and Applied Science to better align the life and physical sciences and the humanities, social sciences and arts. This involves the movement of several academic departments -- some that already have taken place and others that will be completed over the next year.
A reorganization of the College of Education also is underway.
