Effective Nov. 1, the University of Wyoming’s new registrar is Lane Buchanan.

Buchanan, a Baggs native, has served as the associate registrar at UW for the past 13 years.  He has been with the Office of the Registrar since 1997.

Buchanan obtained all his degrees from UW, including a Bachelor of Science in mathematics and secondary education/mathematics as well as a Master of Public Administration.
