UW New President Seidel Starts Presidency Learning and Listening
New University of Wyoming President Ed Seidel has been spending his first two weeks on campus connecting with students, constituents, and citizens of Wyoming.
He intends to spend as much time as possible during his first 77 days listening, learning, and building connections. He hopes to use the insight that he gathers in his first "State of the University" address on September 17.
Seidel has identified several themes he aims to include across all UW programs, which include being more digital, more entrepreneurial, more interdisciplinary, and more inclusive.
His top priorities include building on the portfolio of excellence in education and scholarship already at UW, and deepening partnerships with communities, schools, community colleges, and companies to enhance student-centered programs and educational pipelines to grow UW’s enrollment and strengthen the state’s workforce for the 21st-century economy.
