CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead has appointed a task force to study how to improve the science programs and laboratories at the University of Wyoming.

The Task Force on Science and Facilities consists of nine accomplished scientists, industry leaders and others. Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal (FREE’-den-thawl) is among its members.

The Legislature created the panel as a first step in a process for UW to become one of the top academic and research institutions in science and engineering.

The group is scheduled to meet for the first time on Sept. 9-10 in Laramie. It expects to have a report by Nov. 1 to the governor, who will then submit any funding recommendations for program and facilities improvements to the Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee.
