The Board of Trustees of the University of Wyoming (UW) is conducting a search for its next President. The President reports directly to the UW Board of Trustees, whose twelve voting members are appointed by the Governor. UW seeks a bold visionary President with high energy, an ability to work effectively with diverse constituents, and the capability to lead the institution in fulfilling the university's public land-grant mission.
Established as a land-grant institution in 1886, UW has since grown to nearly 200 areas of study, drawing 12,500+ students from all 50 states and 90 countries. UW is the state’s only four-year university and is a nationally recognized teaching and research university. UW is known for its accomplished faculty and world-class facilities, its small student/faculty ratio, and quality undergraduate and graduate programs within its colleges of Arts & Sciences, Agriculture & Natural Resources, Business, Education, Engineering & Applied Science, Health Sciences, Law, School of Energy Resources, and Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources.
The University also maintains the University of Wyoming – Casper, ten outreach education centers across Wyoming, and agricultural extension offices scattered throughout the state's 23 counties and on the Wind River Indian Reservation. UW has strong working relationships with Wyoming's seven community colleges and economic development groups in key areas of the state, as well as the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center. It is a Carnegie doctoral/research university with high research activity, attracting over $80 million in contracts and grants last year. UW plays a key role in the state's economy, and its research attracts national and international attention.
The State of Wyoming invests strongly in higher education, providing the highest amount of state support per student in the nation. Consequently, UW has the lowest undergraduate tuition among the nation's public doctoral universities. The University also benefits from a $500 million endowed student scholarship program, a robust capital construction budget, an active and successful foundation, a publicly and privately supported endowed faculty program, and state funding for UW's several areas of academic excellence.
The University community is working collaboratively to help the University reinforce and strengthen its reputation as it adapts to changing economic factors in the state and beyond. The University’s strategic roadmap, “Breaking Through 2017-2022: A Strategic Plan for the University of Wyoming,” shows that is it’s an exciting time to be a part of UW as it embarks on new and exciting opportunities.
