Many on campus and the state want to know why UW President Laurie Nichols is not being retained. That includes Dr. Nichols herself. She was hired during a turbulent time at UW, but she believes things are much improved. Nichols says she had been working with UW's Board of Trustees on a new contract and then she was informed last week that her contract would not be renewed.
In her first interview following the news that she would not be retained, Nichols tells Wyoming Public Radio's Bob Beck that the Trustees refused to tell her why they were not renewing her contract and that she remains baffled.
