President's Past Messages

Engaging our Students  Engaging our Students 

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend – one that was certainly well deserved by all after everything we’ve experienced in the last months. I heard you had a bit of snow, which sounds good to me, as it was too hot here to go for the runs that sustain me through all the indoor virtual meetings we now seem to have to stay in touch with each other!

Commencement Reflections Commencement Reflections

I hope you were able to share in the virtual spring 2020 commencement ceremony last Saturday. Perhaps a silver lining to the situation we find ourselves in is that people like me, more than 1,000 miles away, were able to attend virtually, just as everyone did.

It has been a little over a week since my first message to you, and my thoughts are frequently with the UW community and the enormous amount of work and adjustments all of you are addressing on a daily basis.

A Message From Dr. Seidel to the UW Community A Message From Dr. Seidel to the UW Community

I hope everyone is staying safe, as we all continue to adjust to the disruptions of the new environment we find ourselves in. I could not have imagined the current crisis when I visited Laramie almost eight weeks ago. While Wyoming is facing unprecedented challenges, I recognize that the UW community is also national and global, with many of our UW students and families facing potentially even more difficult times. I want to tell you that the university is doing everything it can to support you at a distance wherever you may be, across the state, or around the world -- for as long as it takes -- and we will be here for you when you return to campus.
