Laramie, WY (AP) - University of Wyoming President Dick McGinity says he hopes to start filling several vacant UW administrative positions with permanent replacements during the first half of the fall semester.
McGinity says developing the next generation of UW leaders is one of his top priorities for the second half of 2014.
UW has about a half dozen vacancies in senior administrative and dean positions. Interim appointees are filling the jobs for now.
The first two positions McGinity wants to fill are vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
After that, searches for the deans of the College of Business, the College of Education and the College of Law will take place.
McGinity says details of the individual searches are to be determined.
