You are invited to be a part of an exciting teaching/learning experience. Applications are requested from UW tenured and tenure-track faculty (exceptions could be made for some) for positions as Faculty Fellows in the 2017 UW Summer High School Institute. At the Institute we attempt to provide the students with an enriching academic experience within a lively, nurturing environment. The emphasis of the program is on the development of the whole person. The goal is to draw talented high school students to the University to challenge their intellectual interests, adaptability, creativity, and critical thinking abilities.
The Institute is a three-week summer residential program for approximately one hundred of Wyoming's outstanding high school sophomores. These young people are selected on the basis of demonstrated achievement in a combination of the following areas: general intellectual ability, specific academic aptitude, creative thinking, leadership skills, and the arts.
The Institute offers students, faculty and staff the rare opportunity to share the joy of learning in a community atmosphere where curiosity and enthusiasm, not tests and grades, inspire discovery.
