Breaking Through: 2017-2022

A Strategic Plan for the University of Wyoming


Breaking Through statue by the Gateway Center on UW campus

At the “gateway” to the University of Wyoming, a woman rider breaking through a sandstone wall welcomes all to campus. “Breakin’ Through” captures the spirit of Wyoming and its university: Our students break through to the future for the Cowboy State and the Equality State.

Wyoming’s dual identity has shaped this university from its origins through to the present day. John Hoyt, as territorial governor and UW’s first president, was determined that Wyoming’s lack of statehood would not stand in the way of its citizens’ access to higher education.
