The University of Wyoming aspires to be one of the nation's finest public land-grant research universities. We serve as a statewide resource for accessible and affordable higher education of the highest quality; rigorous scholarship; technology transfer; economic and community development; and responsible stewardship of our cultural, historical, and natural resources.
In the exercise of our primary mission to promote learning, we seek to provide academic and co-curricular opportunities that will:
Expose students to the frontiers of scholarship and creative activity and the complexities of an interdependent world;
Ensure individual interactions among students, faculty, and staff;
Nurture an environment that values and manifests diversity, free expression, academic freedom, personal integrity, and mutual respect; and
Promote opportunities for personal growth, physical health, athletic competition, and leadership development for all members of the university community.
As Wyoming's only university, we are committed to outreach and service that extend our human talent and technological capacity to serve the people in our communities, our state, the nation, and the world.
The primary vehicles for identifying the specific actions and resource allocations needed to accomplish this complex mission are the university's strategic plans, revised periodically.
