LARAMIE -- Outside auditors say the University of Wyoming's net assets and federal funding have increased this year.
The Laramie Daily Boomerang reports that auditors told the university trustees on Wednesday the school's net assets are $824 million, up $31.7 million or 4 percent.
The university received about $82 million in federal funding this year, up $15 million or 22 percent. Auditors say part of the increase came from the federal stimulus package.
The audit was performed by McGee, Hearne and Paiz, a Cheyenne accounting firm.
