UW Releases President Finalist Names
Four current or former provosts of large universities are the finalists for president of the University of Wyoming. The UW Board of Trustees released the names Friday after announcing Thursday it would no longer keep the search secret. A short statement issued by the university said the finalists had agreed to allow their names to be made public. The finalists are: Douglas D. Baker, provost and executive vice president at the University of Idaho; Warwick M. Bayly, provost and executive vice president at Washington State University; Robert Sternberg, provost at Oklahoma State University; and Kim Wilcox, former provost and executive vice president at Michigan State University. The trustees will interview each before choosing a successor to Tom Buchanan, who is retiring. UW received more than 80 applicants for the job.
