ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has approved a five-year plan that aims to advance academic quality, enrollment, statewide engagement and economic contributions.

The university's strategic plan was approved unanimously Friday by the board during a meeting in Rock Springs.

The plan was crafted during a nine-month process involving statewide and campus meetings, public input and multiple revisions.

Specifically, the draft plan targets increasing student recruitment, retention and graduation; degree programs offered through distance technologies; collaborations with community colleges and K-12 schools; research funding; and private contributions to the university, among other measures.

UW President Laurie Nichols says the plan will take the college to new levels of excellence and sets the stage for further breakthroughs for the benefit of our state, the nation and the world.
