Oliver Walter came to U-W in 1970 to teach political science, and became dean in 1989. He says he’s seen a lot change during his time at U-W, including growing emphasis on research, more technology on campus, and increasing diversity. &nbsp;But, for him, a highlight has been the growth of the study abroad program and international relationships.</p> Fri, 10 May 2013 11:45:50 +0000 Irina Zhorov 40549 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org UW Arts and Sciences Dean is wrapping up his career
