LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A University of Wyoming official says the school's new strategic plan could be in place by July 1.

Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Kate Miller set the time estimate Thursday after the first town hall meeting on a draft of the plan.

The draft sets goals that include increasing student recruitment, improving collaboration with community colleges and K-12 schools and boosting research funding and private contributions.

The draft was written by a Strategic Planning Leadership Council after public meetings around Wyoming and on campus.

After public comment, the draft might be revised before it's presented for consideration by UW's Faculty Senate, Staff Senate and the Associated Students of UW.

It then will go to the UW Board of Trustees for final approval.
