CASPER, Wyo. —  The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has announced they will meet and interview semifinalists for the UW presidency this Wednesday and Thursday.

The interviews are taking place at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center to meet with the semifinalists and discuss presidential terms of employment.

These special board executive session meetings will begin at 8 am both days.

The Board of Trustees says they received a list of semifinalists from the UW presidential search committee last week.

Following this week’s interviews, the board says they intend to select approximately three finalists who will be publicly identified and invited to come to campus for open sessions with UW stakeholders during the week of Feb. 24.

“The board will accept public input, which will be followed by interviews of the finalists Feb. 27, before selecting the new president,” UW said in a statement Tuesday. “During the week of March 2, the board may extend an offer to the candidate it selects.”

The new president is expected to be in office by July 1.
