DIRECTOR - #1937

Department: American Heritage Center

The American Heritage Center (AHC) is a major archival repository, holding more than 3,500 manuscript collections. The collections are regional, national, and international in scope. The AHC also maintains the University's rare book collection and serves as the university archives. Its holdings draw scholars from the US and abroad; as well as serving faculty, undergraduate and graduate students at UW, teachers in Wyoming, and the public. The AHC is an active sponsor of scholarly and popular programs including research and travel grants as well as lectures and Wyoming History Day.

One of the four main goals in the University's strategic plan, “Breaking Through 2017-2022,” is to assure the long-term strength and stability of the University by preserving, caring for and developing human, intellectual, financial, structural and marketing resources. This exemplifies the University's commitment to supporting the AHC – preserving its resources, developing the intellectual capital it holds, and assuring its long-term stability and strength.
