Mead: UW Should Release Presidential Finalists Names

Trevor T. Trujillo, Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says University of Wyoming trustees should tell the public who’s on their list of finalists to become the next university president.

A new law would allow the presidential search process to remain secret. Mead expressed a degree of opposition by allowing the measure to take effect without his signature.

Mead says an open process gets more buy-in from citizens.

Now, UW trustees are preparing to look for a new president. Bob Sternberg announced his resignation after just four months on the job.

UW trustees hired Sternberg after a mostly secret search process. Trustees said they wanted to protect candidates who held university jobs elsewhere.

The trustees announced the finalists after a judge sided with news organizations that sued to get the information.
