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:
The Jackson Hole News & Guide included comments from UW’s Kevin Monteith, a Wyoming Excellence Chair, in an article detailing the high mortality rate of mule deer due to harsh winter conditions that have decimated western Wyoming herds. The Casper Star-Tribune (CS-T), Cowboy State Daily, Bigfoot 99 Radio and The Kemmerer Gazette published related articles that mentioned Monteith.
UW College of Law Professor George Mocsary co-wrote an opinion piece in The Hill titled “Could the Supreme Court help protect the First Amendment from regulatory abuse?” Mocsary -- co-founder and director of UW’s Firearms Research Center -- is a nationally recognized Second Amendment expert.
Cowboy State Daily interviewed Mocsary about his recently submitted amicus brief that urges the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the National Rifle Association’s ability to do business with banks and insurance companies. Mocsary, who advised the U.S. Supreme Court in a 2022 landmark gun-rights case, co-filed the brief with Brian Knight, a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center.
The Washington Post interviewed John Koprowski, dean of the UW Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, for an article titled “Massive waves of squirrels once roamed America. No one knows why.” Koprowski is an international squirrel expert.
MSN republished an Outdoor Life piece in which Matt Kauffman, head of the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at UW, was among wildlife experts discussing what wild game species have the best chance of surviving climate change.
The CS-T interviewed Ryan Webb, a UW assistant professor of civil engineering who studies snow hydrology, for an article on the storm that dumped snow on central Wyoming and broke records in the Casper area last week.
Wyoming Public Radio noted that April is Deaf History Month, but the Cowboy State lacks the resources to observe it. Esther Hartsky, an assistant lecturer in the UW Division of Communication Disorders and an American Sign Language instructor, was interviewed for the segment.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle and The Sheridan Press noted that UW’s Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources and the Wyoming Outdoor Recreation, Tourism and Hospitality Initiative will host an emerging issues forum later this month in Laramie.

The Powell Tribune published UW’s release announcing that a “UW in Your Community” gathering will take place April 18 in Cody.
