Indy Burke

The goal I have for the ENR program is to advance effective decision making for environmental and natural resource issues by promoting and assisting collaborative informed approaches that sustain both the economy and the environment. Our work involves applied research and the dissemination of knowledge through outreach to stakeholders.

ENR Director Indy Burke oversees the Haub School, including its interdisciplinary programs and faculty development, the Wyoming Conservation Corps, and the Ruckelshaus Institute, a leader in applied environmental and natural resource research, knowledge and outreach. Burke also oversees the Institute's collaborative processes for natural resource issues with an emphasis on improving the linkages between science and management in Wyoming and the West. Burke represents ENR and the University of Wyoming in a variety of state and national settings.
