Center for Global Studies

Bringing the World to Wyoming and Wyoming to the World

Finding practical solutions to complex global problems 

The Center for Global Studies (CGS) at the University of Wyoming brings a world of possibilities to UW and the state.  By providing access to funding and expertise, the Center for Global Studies advances the University of Wyoming to the next level of excellence in internationally focused research in order to find solutions to complex global problems.  Its mission is to enhance international competencies at home in order to prepare Wyoming students – particularly the 90% who have not had an international experience – as well as faculty, communities, and businesses to compete and succeed in a global economy.  The Center will tap the potential of interdisciplinary, collaborative, and international expertise at UW to invigorate faculty interactions, faculty-student international research, enrich teaching, and to serve as a central ‘clearinghouse’ for global academic expertise at UW.  This Center, with links to the social sciences, humanities, and STEM fields, provides a model for creating and enhancing:

  • faculty research opportunities as well as the hosting of international experts/practitioners;
  • graduate education by establishing graduate fellowships to attract and reward top students doing international research;
  • international fieldwork, research and internship opportunities for Wyoming students; and
  • outreach, speakers, and symposia at UW and around the state – particularly in partnership with Wyoming’s community colleges.
