Welcome Alumni & Friends!

As a supporter of the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences, we understand that you believe in the mission of the College. Whether you are an alumnus of one of our divisions or programs, you have experience working with one of our units, or you have received excellent health care, we know you recognize the value of the education our students receive, and the importance of paying it forward.


The UW College of Health Sciences is comprised of the Divisions of Communication Disorders, Kinesiology and Health, and Social Work, and the School of Pharmacy and the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing. We are also home to the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND). We have two successful programs at the UW-Casper campus, which include the Bachelor’s in Social Work program and the Medical Laboratory Sciences Degree Program.

We also pride ourselves on the medical education we provide. The University of Wyoming is part of the five state medical school consortium known as WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) which offers medical students clinical practice sites throughout the region. In addition, the College provides graduate medical education through our Family Medicine Residency Programs in Casper and Cheyenne.

Our programs continue to grow, and accordingly, so does our need for your support. We want you to be a part of helping us plan for our future, and we will continue to share with you news and information about our students and our continuing efforts to provide them with the best possible learning environment. Our future will always be focused on providing our students with the best education and clinical spaces needed to practice so that they will become the health care professionals they aspire to be.

Your support can and will help make that happen!

For example, a $1 million gift to the University of Wyoming Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing by longtime supporter the McMurry Foundation, aims to boost the delivery of psychiatric mental health nursing and integrated care in Wyoming through UW’s undergraduate and graduate programs.

The gift creates the McMurry Foundation Fund in Mental Health and Integrated Care in Honor of Mary Burman, which benefits the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing. The fund honors Burman, dean of the School of Nursing from 2008-2019 and director of the Division of Social Work, 2016-19.

Are you interested in learning how you can support the continued growth of excellence in the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences? We invite you to contact our representative in the UW Foundation to learn how you can help – Thank You for Paying It Forward!
