One hundred and twenty-five years ago, the University of Wyoming opened its doors to just 42 students representing mostly small towns across Wyoming. Today, UW draws over 13,800 students from all 50 states and more than 90 countries to take advantage of one of the best educational experiences in the United States. Recognized by Forbes magazine as #5 on its list of "America's Best College Buys," UW is proud of its 190 areas of study, internationally renowned faculty, small student/faculty ratio, innovative undergraduate and graduate research opportunities, and varied lifestyle opportunities, including year-round cultural and recreational activities. Without a doubt, UW provides an environment for meaningful dialogues, dynamic connections, and personal success.
I'm very proud to be a part of this extraordinary institution and its rich history of working toward a broad definition of diversity for the entire campus community. I established the Strategic Diversity Initiatives Committee (SDIC) in 2009 to further advance the university's commitment to promoting diversity on campus and how we think about diversity in our ever evolving world. There are a host of programs, departments, and individuals doing great work in support of UW's diversity goals, and the SDIC works to support these efforts, in addition to pursuing its own projects. I'm particularly pleased with its innovative approach to working collaboratively with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to enhance opportunities for diversity both at UW and these new sister institutions.
SDIC is by no means the sole guardian of diversity at UW; enhancing diversity is a fundamental responsibility of every member of this community. But we also realize that our efforts can only be enhanced with the input and assistance from many. In the coming weeks and months as you work with our faculty and staff, I encourage you to contact us via email or phone if you have suggestions, opportunities, or concerns.
President, University of Wyoming
