The University of Wyoming aspires to be one of the nation's
finest public land-grant research universities. We serve as a statewide
resource for accessible and affordable higher education of the highest
quality; rigorous scholarship; technology transfer; economic and
community development; and responsible stewardship of our cultural,
historical, and natural resources.
In the exercise of our primary mission to promote learning, we seek to
provide academic and co-curricular opportunities that will:
- Expose students to the frontiers of scholarship and creative
activity and the complexities of an interdependent world;
- Ensure individual interactions among students, faculty, and
- Nurture an environment that values and manifests diversity, free
expression, academic freedom, personal integrity, and mutual
- Promote opportunities for personal growth, physical health,
athletic competition, and leadership development for all members of
the university community.
As Wyoming's only university, we are committed to outreach and service
that extend our human talent and technological capacity to serve the
people in our communities, our state, the nation, and the world.
The primary vehicles for identifying the specific actions and resource
allocations needed to accomplish this complex mission are the
university's strategic plans, revised periodically.
