Faculty senate recommends UW Postpone Y Cross sale five years

Oct 31, 2012 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- A resolution by the University of Wyoming Faculty Senate hasn't swayed school administrators from their plan to sell a southeast Wyoming ranch the UW Foundation jointly owns with its counterpart at Colorado State University.

The resolution, which passed 33-16 last week, calls for the sale to be delayed five years. UW would use the hiatus to promote the Y Cross Ranch to faculty, staff and students for use in the manner that the donor of the vast property intended.

After five years, an advisory committee would be established to make a formal public recommendation on whether or not to sell the Y Cross, according to the resolution.
