UW Board of Trustees approves College of Agriculture name change
The College of Agriculture at the University of Wyoming has a new name.
The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees voted Nov. 20 to change the college's name to the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The change is effective immediately.
Dean Frank Galey had obtained favorable comments about renaming the college at meetings around the state and from commodity groups. Galey also polled college faculty members and academic professionals. More than 90 percent approved the change in name.
"Our agriculture is completely interwoven into natural resource issues important to the state and its land and people," said Galey. "The college name change will help attract students and other interested folks who are passionate about the land and rural communities but may not have seen themselves under a more traditional name and rubric."
