Health, Safety and Supervision

The health, safety, and security of our students are our primary concerns. The quality and consistency of our staff, training, communications, and medical facilities ensure that your child is well taken care of.

What kind of health, safety, and security are provided?

Doctor appointments are arranged with the University of Wyoming Student Health Service. Students are taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital for 24-hour emergency care. Students needing medical attention of any kind are accompanied by Energy Summer Institute (ESI) staff. ESI staff also obtains any prescribed medications resulting from medical services. Parents are notified before medical visits with the exception of life-threatening emergencies. Students must complete a medical history form prior to attendance.

Although we believe UW and the Laramie community is a safe environment, ESI counselors and University of Wyoming Residence Life staff are on duty on- and off- campus 24 hours a day. For additional safety, access to the building is electronically controlled. Visitors are required to check-in at the front desk. In keeping with a collegiate atmosphere, students are permitted to walk freely on campus, but are required to adhere to a "buddy system."

What staff support and supervision are provided?

The Energy Summer Institute staff consists of 4 camp counselors. The counselors stay on campus and live with the students for the duration of the Institute. They supervise and counsel students as well as participate as group leaders in activities. They are also in charge of planning and chaperoning evening excursions and recreational activities. Counselors work supportively with residence-hall staff to make the Institute more effective and interesting during the students' one-week stay.
