Faculty push for more diversity on UW board

Apr 6, 2017 The Associated Press

LARAMIE (AP) -- Faculty members at the University of Wyoming are calling for more diversity on the school's board of trustees.

The university's Faculty Senate unanimously passed a resolution last week asking Gov. Matt Mead to recognize the need for more diversity on the board. In 2014, it passed a measure calling for parity of men and women on the board.

Faculty Senate Secretary Donal O'Toole says there are only two women on the 12-member board.

Mead recently declined to reappoint Democrat Mike Massie and named four men -- three Republicans and one independent -- to the board.

The next trustees aren't scheduled to be appointed until after he leaves office but political science professor Maggi Murdock says the faculty still wanted to make a statement on the issue.
