Campus Scene IN THE SPOTLIGHT University of Wyoming Announces Budget Reduction Plan In response to a request from Gov. Matt Mead and the Wyoming Legislature, University of Wyoming (UW) offi cials have arrived at a plan to reduce UW's budget by $15.7M annually. Prompted by anticipated declines in state revenues due to lower-than-expected natural gas prices, Mead in April asked state agencies to plan for possible 8 percent annual budget reductions for the fi scal year that begins July 1, 2013. UW leaders, who sought input from across campus in drafting the plan, say it attempts to reduce spending with the least possible impact on the University's academic mission. It also identifi es non- personnel areas for budget reductions in preference to workforce attrition and pos- sible employee layoffs.
