Report recommends spending more, accommodating UW student athletes

A new report suggests that University of Wyoming Athletics can excel with a few big changes.

UW President Bob Sternberg wants to improve UW athletics, and his office funded the $35,000 College Sports Associates study. 

It suggested that UW athletics be a consideration in the University’s long term planning process, and that academic polices be changed to make it easier for student athletes to transfer credits. It also pointed to the need for additional revenue to address high travel costs, staff recruitment and retention… and for UW to have enough money to compete with other schools in the Mountain West Conference. 

CSA said an overall culture change is needed to create the expectation of conference championships at UW. 

Bob Beck retired from Wyoming Public Media after serving as News Director of Wyoming Public Radio for 34 years. During his time as News Director WPR has won over 100 national, regional and state news awards.
