UW trustees huddling over Sternberg flap

Nov 14, 2013 - The Associated Press

LARAMIE -- The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is meeting in Laramie amid dissatisfaction with new President Bob Sternberg.

The trustees entered executive session at 8 a.m. Thursday and were still behind closed doors well past 11 a.m. The board canceled a planned public comment period Thursday morning.

UW spokesman Chad Baldwin says the public comment will be rescheduled for Friday.

Sternberg has been under fire in recent days over how he is managing the state's only public four-year university.

Sternberg took over the job July 1. Since then, five administrators and three deans have decided to leave their jobs.

Some left because of differences with Sternberg, while others left for other reasons.

Law school Dean Steve Easton, who is resigning effective Friday, has openly challenged Sternberg's ethics.
