University of Wyoming Key Developments

University of Wyoming Announces Executive Changes

University of Wyoming Board of Trustees Approved the appointment of Robert Sternberg as president. He also will hold tenure at the rank of professor in the Department of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences and a secondary appointment in the Department of Professional Studies in the College of Education. Since 2010, he has served as provost and senior vice president; Regents Professor of Psychology and Education; and the George Kaiser Family Foundation Chair in Ethical Leadership at Oklahoma State University. Prior to that appointment, he held administrative and faculty positions at Tufts University and Yale University. The company also approved the appointment of Tara Evans as deputy general counsel. She served as a judicial clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, D.C., and as an assistant attorney general for the Wyoming Attorney General's Office in Cheyenne. Evans has served as associate general counsel at UW since 2010. Prior to that, she served as special assistant to the president; Beth Robitalle, as director with the Family Medicine Residency Program in Casper; and Anne M. Alexander as associate dean of the Outreach School; she retrains her appointment as International Programs director. Retirements were approved for Susan Weidel, general counsel, and Rodney Lang, deputy general counsel.

University of Wyoming Continues with Staff Reduction Plan

The University of Wyoming so far has eliminated 42 non-academic staff positions and is holding open 12 faculty positions as initial steps to prepare for anticipated state budget cuts in the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2013. The reductions, which will be made over a two-year period, have started now, before Gov. Matt Mead and the Wyoming State Legislature take final action on UW's budget, to avoid employee layoffs when any reductions take effect. After asking UW and state agencies last year to prepare for budget reductions of up to 8%, the governor has recommended that state operating funds for the university be cut by 6% starting in the 2013-14 fiscal year. The plan developed by the university in response to the governor's request calls for a reduction in non-personnel expenses of 14%, with just a 3.5% cut in personnel expenses. Still, a 3.5% reduction for personnel ultimately will result in the elimination of an estimated 100 non-academic positions and 24 faculty positions. The second quarterly meeting on Jan. 10 resulted in a reduction of 14 additional staff positions. Together, the loss of the 42 non-academic positions will save the university $1.24 million annually. The eliminated staff positions are scattered across numerous campus units, including Academic Affairs, Administration and Finance, Athletics, Information Technology, the President's Office, the Office of Research and Economic Development and Student Affairs. The next quarterly meeting is scheduled for early April 2013, when the vice presidents will aim to identify positions to be eliminated to save $375,000 in non-academic salaries.
