ABOUT THE CENTER FOR GLOBAL STUDIES

The Center for Global Studies (CGS) will advance the University of Wyoming to the next level of excellence in internationally-focused scholarship, research, and enhanced student education.  It will be the University of Wyoming’s home for interdisciplinary research with a mission to foster global and comparative scholarship and learning for the benefit of students, faculty and the broader Wyoming and national/international community.  The Center seeks to enhance international competencies at home which are necessary to engage students and faculty in a changing, challenging, and interdependent global society.


Fostering Interdisciplinary International Collaboration and Research Excellence
The Center will serve as a collaboration fulcrum for faculty/students in various colleges and departments to foster cross-disciplinary research in international socio-political, historical, cultural, scientific, environmental, energy, and economic issues. By serving as a central ‘clearinghouse’ for global academic expertise at UW, the Center enables the goal of UW’s strategic plan to “facilitate the contributions of experts from many disciplines to local, state, and federal decision-making.”  The Center’s activities specifically enhance the University’s goal to strengthen global perspectives in diversity and liberal arts education as it cultivates leadership, excellence, and builds depth in international research and creative activities. The Center will be a home for internationally-focused, multidisciplinary collaborative research groups that involve faculty and students. 

Priorities to Launch the Institute/Center in 2014

  • Faculty Fellowships/Research Support.  Center-sponsoredFaculty Fellowships provide a vital link in building UW’s international reputation and connections as they assist faculty efforts to internationalize their scholarship and courses, expand their global collaboration opportunities, work on international projects on-site, prepare to lead UW students on courses abroad, and build connections with our strategic partner institutions.  The Center also will create a network of resource faculty that enhances visiting scholars’ experiences at the University of Wyoming.  
  • Graduate Fellowship and Graduate Research Assistantship Support.  With its research groups, workshops, and symposia, the IGS will be a natural vehicle to enhance graduate mentorship and undergraduate education and training in internationally-oriented fields at the University of Wyoming.
    1. Establish a prestigious Graduate Fellowship in Global Studies which will be awarded to the top students doing international social science research.
    2. Establish funding for graduate assistantships to support Center collaborative research projects, which simultaneously provides vital experience and mentorship for graduate students as it supports the research mission of the Center.
    • Enhancing International Fieldwork and International Internship Opportunities for Students.  The CGS will facilitate and provide important support for students doing research in international locales and enhance international internship opportunities.
    • Bringing the World to Wyoming: Outreach, Speakers, and Symposia. As a research unit, the Center will sponsor conferences/workshops and symposia on a wide range of global issues independently and in conjunction with other programs and departments across campus as well as with outside organizations to bring programs to the University and the state of Wyoming.
