UW Presidential Search Listening Sessions Today, Tomorrow

September 21, 2015

Members of the University of Wyoming community and people around Wyoming have an opportunity to voice their desired qualifications and characteristics for a new UW president today (Monday) and Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Presidential search listening sessions are scheduled on the Laramie campus and at UW-Casper, with video-conferencing connections to many Wyoming communities. The meetings will be led by representatives of Storbeck Pimentel, the consulting firm retained by the UW Board of Trustees to assist with the search.

Two sessions are planned for UW faculty members. The first is 10:30-11:30 a.m. today in Coe Library Room 506; the second is Tuesday from 1-2 p.m. at the same location. Members of the Faculty Senate and all UW faculty members are invited.

A brown-bag lunch meeting with the campus community and the general public is today from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Coe Library Room 506.

Members of the Staff Senate and all UW staff members are invited to the same location from 1-2 p.m. today.

A meeting for the Associated Students of UW and all students is set from 2-3 p.m. at the same location.

A statewide outreach meeting, originating from UW-Casper, is set for 5-6:30 p.m. today at Room 420 of the Casper College Student Union/University of Wyoming (UU) Building. UW employees and members of the public can attend in person at that site or connect through UW’s Outreach Video Network.
