About UW

Established in 1886 as a land-grant university, the University of Wyoming has since grown into a nationally recognized research institution which includes accomplished faculty and world-class facilities on a picturesque campus. UW  provides a unique learning environment with more than 200 areas of study, 250 student organizations and one of the nation’s most extensive study abroad programs. UW’s 13,929 students hail from all 50 states and 94 countries.

UW offers academic programs through seven colleges and multiple interdisciplinary institutes and schools. With a small student/faculty ratio of 14:1, UW is a community of scholars and learners committed to excellence. UW’s academic programs of distinction are focused in six broad areas: science and technology, the arts and humanities, environment and natural resources, life sciences, and professions critical to the state and region.
