University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols and other UW leaders have planned a community meeting in Laramie on Wednesday, Dec. 7, to hear input on a strategic plan for the university’s next five years, according to a UW press release.

The listening session is scheduled from 4:30-6 pm at the Albany County Public Library. The meeting is part of the statewide listening sessions starting on Nov. 30.

“These sessions are for us to hear from the people of Wyoming about their land-grant university,” Nichols says. “Creating a strong five-year plan is so important as it sets priorities and indicates areas of focus. I want to be there personally to listen to people’s hopes and dreams for Wyoming’s university, as well as the obstacles to achieving those dreams and ideas on how those challenges can be overcome.”

The statewide listening sessions are in addition to discussions on campus focused on creating a road map for UW for the next five years. All Wyoming citizens are invited to participate in the strategic listening sessions. Nichols will be a guest during the ‘Laramie Live’ on KOWB morning show Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 9:40 am.
