In his State of the University Address today/Thursday, University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan sang the faculty's praises and expressed gratitude to private donors who support education and research.
Buchanan says faculty and staff have made U-W QUOTE "a great university." He says he intends to fight to make sure that continues.
"This is a budget year in Wyoming so I want you all to know that faculty and staff raises are our number one priority with the legislature this year."
Buchanan says U-W's decision to offer health care benefits to domestic partners have already helped in recruiting choice faculty members this year.
