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:
Oil City News reported that UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources received a $1 million anonymous gift that will establish the International Wildlife Conservation Chair. UW’s release noted that the chair supports John Koprowski, dean of the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.
UW economist Rob Godby was among experts who discussed the merits of the national Inflation Reduction Act, which aligns with Wyoming policies but not the political side of the issue, in a WyoFile piece. Measures of the act increase tax credits for carbon capture, use and sequestration and support hydrogen, nuclear and rare-earth initiatives, according to the article.
Cowboy State Daily also interviewed Godby for an article focusing on an increase of coal production in the U.S. Godby said a number of factors are keeping natural gas supplies scarce, which is creating a temporary interest in coal. Godby also was featured in a republished article on Wyoming Public Radio’s website on how the pandemic has affected the job market in the Mountain West, specifically in Wyoming.
Brigham Young University School of Communications’ The Daily Universe recently published an interview with UW Professor Tracey Owens Patton about the historical events of the Black 14 who were kicked off the Cowboys football team in 1969.
Cowboy State Daily interviewed UW law Professor George Mocsary, a Second Amendment expert, on an article focusing on credit card companies’ imminent ability to track gun and ammunition purchases with a specific code for firearms vendors. His advice for gun buyers is to use cash or check their credit card companies’ user agreements. Mocsary also discussed with Hamodia -- the daily newspaper for Torah Jewry based in Brooklyn -- New York’s response to a recent Supreme Court ruling that deemed New York gun laws unconstitutional.
UW’s Wyoming Wool Initiative, which aims to boost the state’s sheep industry, was featured on Wyoming Public Radio.
Wyoming Public Radio also interviewed UW Extension Educator Jeremiah Vardiman, from the Park County extension office, about last week’s grape-growing session in Lander. Cowboy State Daily published a similar article.
UW’s release announcing community engagement sessions to discuss the university’s Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program was published by WyoToday Media and County 10, which noted that Riverton will host one of the events. WyoToday Media also published UW’s release noting that three UW College of Engineering and Physical Sciences students recently received the annual Paul Rechard Memorial Scholarship.
County 17 and The Cheyenne Post published UW’s release announcing that Arch Resources recently donated $500,000 to UW’s School of Energy Resources to support its work in carbon management and land reclamation practices.
Oil City News reported that UW Extension will host a tree care workshop next month at the Agricultural Resource and Learning Center in Casper.
