Robert Sternberg       Robert Sternberg is making a good impression on his first visit to the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie since being named its new president in February, succeeding the retiring Tom Buchanan

Sternberg toured the campus Monday and met with university leaders, students and faculty, listening to concerns and describing his goals and leadership style. Those who met with him described Sternberg as likable, intelligent and passionate for undergraduate education.

The 63-year-old Sternberg is to continue his campus visit Tuesday before returning to Oklahoma State University where he is provost and senior vice president.

He says one of his first priorities after he officially takes office July 1st is to travel around Wyoming to meet with residents, legislators, business leaders and K-12 educators.
