Laramie Lawmaker Defends Secret UW Search

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Some lawmakers say a new law allowing the University of Wyoming and community colleges to hire presidents in secret is worth looking at again next year to provide more openness.
However, the Laramie lawmaker who pushed the law defends the legislation.

The UW Board of Trustees last week selected a new president after deciding to abandon its confidential search and release the names of the four finalists to the public.
By all accounts, Robert Sternberg is highly qualified to replace President Tom Buchanan, who is retiring.

Republican Rep. Kermit Brown, who sponsored the new law, says it’s not known whether UW got the best possible candidates because some pulled out to avoid being identified.

Jim Angell of the Wyoming Press Association says the law is unnecessary.
