Outstanding UW Faculty
University of Wyoming professors are deeply invested in each student's educational journey. The proof is in the numbers.
According to the latest UW Student Opinion Survey (UWSOS), UW students overwhelmingly agreed that they are happy with their educational experience and believe they are growing intellectually -- two prime indicators that UW faculty members are meeting students' expectations and delivering first-rate instruction.
Professors at UW are more than educators. They are mentors who make themselves accessible to work with students beyond the classroom and who care about their students' growth from the first day of classes until graduation. Many UW faculty members and students share friendships that remain after graduation.
In the 2011 UWSOS, one of three student surveys conducted on a biennial basis since 1994 and composed of questions developed largely by Student Affairs and Academic Affairs, 96 percent of UW students agreed they were happy with their educational experience and 85 percent said they were growing intellectually.
In addition, 85 percent of students indicated that nearly all of faculty is knowledgeable in its field and 82 percent said that instruction in their major is excellent. Both rankings are significantly more positive than the national average.
At UW, the faculty makes the difference!
