Set in the unique context of the Rocky Mountain West, the University of Wyoming is a leader in research and development related to energy, ecology, computational science, and environmental education, to enhanced technology-based distance education, and to socially responsible environmental and cultural preservation in one of the world’s most naturally pristine environments. With an enrollment of about 13,000 students, UW is small enough to provide a highly interactive intellectual community in which interdisciplinary collaborations readily occur within varied research and outreach initiatives and across courses, programs of study, and mentorship of students and faculty.
The College of Education develops competent and democratic professionals with a commitment to social justice and to recruiting and supporting an increasingly diverse faculty. The University of Wyoming’s mission is to “nurture an environment that values and manifests diversity, free expression, academic freedom, personal integrity, and mutual respect,” which the College of Education supports through the Shepard Symposium for Social Justice, the Social Justice Research Center, and the President’s Advisory Council on Minority and Women’s Affairs. The College of Education has long-standing partnerships with public school districts, including schools on the Wind River Indian Reservation. The College of Education is one of the largest colleges at the University of Wyoming and includes a robust teacher education program and confers degrees at the baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels.
The University of Wyoming is located in Laramie, a town of 27,000 in the heart of the Rocky Mountain west. Located on a high plain between the Laramie and Snowy Range mountains, Laramie has over 300 days of sunshine a year and provides beautiful mountain views. Laramie is within close proximity to year-round outdoor activities that include skiing, hiking, camping, and climbing. The community provides the advantages of a major university and a distinctive identity as an important city in a frontier state. The larger cities of Colorado’s Front Range are within 1-3 hours driving distance.
