The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees will consider the university’s strategic plan for the next five years during a meeting Tuesday through Friday, July 18-21, at Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs.
Meetings with legislators and Wyoming community college presidents also are on the agenda for the board during its traditional once-a-year, off-campus meeting.
Most of the meeting will be held in Room 3650 of the WWCC campus. UW Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions.
Public testimony will be accepted at 10:30 a.m. Friday. The business meeting, in which trustees take formal action on agenda items, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday.
The strategic plan, scheduled to be considered for adoption by the board Friday morning, will guide the university for the next five years. It was crafted by UW’s Strategic Planning Leadership Council and the administration during a nine-month process that included statewide and campus listening sessions, the release of a first draft and solicitation of public comment.
The final version of the plan going before the board may be found in the board report at www.uwyo.edu/trustees/2017-meeting-materials/july_18-21_2017_meeting.html, along with the full July 18-21 agenda and other materials for the meeting.
The trustees’ meeting with legislators is scheduled at 2 p.m. Wednesday in Room 2605 at WWCC, and the meeting with community college presidents is 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the same location.
The board meeting begins Tuesday at 5 p.m. with an executive session. A working breakfast of the board is scheduled at 8 a.m. Wednesday, followed by meetings of various board committees from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Thursday’s session begins with reports from those committees at 8 a.m., with topics including: implementation of the WyoCloud financial management system; selection of a firm to help prepare a 10-year campus housing plan; design of the Science Initiative Building; and an update on the UW Plaza.
Other discussion topics scheduled for the full board Thursday are UW’s agreements with the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho business councils; UW’s medical education residencies; and the UW-National Park Service Research Center in Grand Teton National Park.
In addition to the strategic plan, Friday morning’s topics of discussion include enrollment capacity and the Trustees Education Initiative.
