Dec 6, 2013 - The Associated PressLARAMIE -- The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees was meeting Friday for the first time since President Bob Sternberg's resignation after less than five months on the job.
The board's special meeting agenda included a closed session to discuss personnel matters.
When the board met Nov. 14, it was surprised by Sternberg's resignation, effective Dec. 31.
The board has not yet discussed openly how it will go about searching for a new president. Under a recent state law, the board can conduct its search entirely in secret.
The UW Faculty Senate has said it wants the names of finalists publicized well in advance of a decision by the regents. It also wants the finalists to meet with faculty and to make a public presentation to the community.
The search that resulted in Sternberg's hiring last winter was done mostly in secret until the trustees were forced to release the finalist names because of threatened legal action from media.
