University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan announced Thursday that he will retire at the end of summer 2013. Buchanan made the announcement during his “State of the University Speech”. UW Board of Trustees President Dave Bostrom of Worland said the board accepted Buchanan’s retirement with regret, as the president has provided exemplary leadership and led the university with distinction.
During his convocation speech, Buchanan highlighted a number of the university’s and the state’s accomplishments during his tenure as provost and then president. He credited many people, including UW’s leadership team, for the achievements.
