Saturday University

Saturday U is sponsored by the University of Wyoming Outreach School, the Wyoming Humanities Council and the University of Wyoming Foundation, joined by local supporters. In Jackson, these are Central Wyoming College, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and the Teton County Library Foundation. In Gillette, these include Gillette College and the Campbell County Library.  In Sheridan, this includes Sheridan College and the Ucross Foundation.

Each Saturday U term features lectures from three outstanding University of Wyoming professors. Following the lectures, all three professors will participate in a final roundtable discussion. Participants may attend one, two, three, or all four sessions. No registration is required, and there is no charge.

The UCROSS Pollination Experiment documentary has been released!

The Ucross-Pollination Experiment follows eight academics as they step beyond their disciplines: blurring the boundaries of science, art, and the humanities. The experiment teamed up four pairs from the fields of art and science in an effort to promote collaboration beyond one's academic specialty.  The partners were asked to view the Ucross environment  through both their partner's discipline and their own. Over the course of 11 days, each of the pairs produced a collaborative project that was presented to the public at Saturday U.

Saturday U returns to Sheridan - February 6, 2016

Saturday U image
Saturday University -- the University of Wyoming’s popular, free, one-day college education program -- returns to Sheridan Saturday, Feb. 6. Area residents have the opportunity to go back to college for a day, with two UW professors and a Sheridan College faculty member lecturing. Wyoming immigration issues, understanding the meaning of poetry and how climate change affects polar bears are topics that will be discussed at Sheridan College’s Whitney Academic Center Atrium. The program is free and open to the public. The half-day of college classes and discussion begins with refreshments at 8:30 a.m., followed by a welcoming address at 8:50 a.m. The guest lectures begin at 9:10 a.m. In its eighth year, Saturday U is a collaborative program that connects popular UW and Wyoming community college professors with lifelong learners. Offered six times a year -- twice each in Jackson, Gillette and Sheridan -- Saturday U is sponsored by the university, the UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities Council, and is presented locally by Sheridan College and the UW Outreach School.
