University of Wyoming announces Edward Seidel as next president
4 Mar 2020
Edward Seidel, who touted economic development and the university's role in enhancing the state's economic well-being, has been unanimously selected to be the 28th president of the University of Wyoming.
Currently the vice president for economic development and innovation for the University of Illinois System, Seidel was one of three finalists for the position. The school announced its choice Wednesday morning.
He will take over in July as the school's first permanent president since the board allowed former president Laurie Nichols' contract to expire. He will sign a three-year contract that will pay him $365,000 annually, plus $110,000 in other compensation.
