Dr. Laurie Nichols
Nick Learned, Townsquare Media Laramie

Dr. Laurie Nichols was selected as the 26th president of the University of Wyoming by the Board of Trustees in a special meeting Friday morning.

Nichols will be the first female president in UW history.  She will replace President Dick McGinity when his contract expires on June 30 and he returns to a faculty position in the College of Business.

Currently, Nichols is Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at South Dakota State University.  She will likely spend time on campus as part of a transition process before she takes office July 1.

In the video below, Nichols describes what she brings to the table.
