UW Faculty Senate Wants Open Presidential Search

Trevor T. Trujillo, Townsquare Media

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming Faculty Senate strongly supports publicizing the names of finalists before the regents choose a new university president.

The faculty senate voted 47 to 3 on Monday in support of the nonbinding measure.

Former UW President Bob Sternberg announced his resignation on Nov. 14. He resigned after serving just over four months on the job.

Some faculty members said Sternberg’s short-lived presidency could have been avoided if the names of finalists in the search that led to Sternberg’s hiring had been made public well in advance of the final selection. The university announced four finalists Feb. 22 and selected Sternberg as president four days later.
