LARAMIE — A planned marketing campaign for the University of Wyoming is being criticized by some as being sexist and counterproductive to the goal of recruiting more out-of-state students. Associate professor Christine Porter says the slogan, “The world needs more cowboys,” evokes images of stereotypical western icons misrepresenting UW’s research and educational goals. She says she cares more about the university having a slogan that makes all people feel welcome here. UW Director of Communications Chad Baldwin defended the slogan, saying one of the campaign’s central goals was redefining the word “cowboy” to represent all faculty, staff, students and others associated with the university.
