The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has hired California-based Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates to help find a new president of the university.
Current UW President Dick McGinity plans to step down next summer.
The final contract between the firm and the trustees was signed last week.
Storbeck/Pimentel will work closely with Brad Mead, the search recruiter selected by the trustees to add more local and state input into the process.
Trustees hope to name a new president early next year.
