University of Wyoming Geology Museum to be Re-opened Part Time
After much public protest and outcry, the University of Wyoming has found
funding to reopen the S.H. Knight Geological museum part-time, without a
curator or part-time secretary, beginning Aug. 24. But at least one member
of the recently formed group, Friends of the S.H. Knight Geological Museum
said its a solution that Doesnt address the major issues that were brought
about by the termination of the (geological museum).
University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan said he directed the museum
to reopen after the UW Foundation identified private funds that would be
used to pay for security so the museum could be open to UW visitors, on a
part-time basis, through the coming academic year.
The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees moved one step closer Thursday
toward construction of a new visual arts building. The trustees
unanimously approved a request for legislative permission for the
university to issue bonds for one of its capital facilities projects.
To construct the new facility, the university would issue bonds not to
exceed $33 million, which would be paid for through UWs portion of federal
mineral royalties, rather than requesting a state appropriation.
