Eminent Artists-in-Residence

Department of Theatre and Dance

The Eminent Artist-in-Residence Endowment

In 2008, Wyoming's second state-endowed professorship, the Eminent-Artist-in-Residence, was funded by the Excellence in Higher Education Endowment through the Wyoming State Legislature, and awarded to UW's three Fine Arts departments - Art, Music, and Theatre & Dance - on a rotating basis.  The Wyoming State Legislature established the endowment in 2006 to create senior faculty positions for "highly distinguished scholars and teachers." The first endowed professorship went to UW’s MFA Program in Creative Writing.

To date, UW Theatre & Dance has hosted three Eminent-Artists-in-Residence, including:
