Welcome to the Wyoming School-University Partnership!

The Wyoming School-University Partnership is a statewide collaborative group of school districts, community colleges, the University of Wyoming, and state education organizations, working together to simultaneously improve teacher education and renew public schooling.

 

The Partnership focuses on three primary initiatives:

  1. Agenda for Education in a Democracy
    The Partnership believes that American students have the right and obligation to blossom into well-prepared and socially-engaged citizens in a democracy. School is the best and most complex setting for students to learn the skills of critical thinking and civil discourse.

  2. Lost in Transition Initiative
    The transition from high school to higher education can be a significant challenge for many students, particularly when high school and college-level coursework are not congruent. This frequent lack of cohesion between secondary and postsecondary learning expectations is an issue the Partnership is working to tackle within the Hathaway Success Curriculum areas, including English/language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and world languages.

  3. Wyoming Educator Professional Development Opportunities
    The Partnership is a frequent and active co-sponsor for many University of Wyoming and statewide events centered on providing educators meaningful professional development opportunities. All of the events which the Partnership co-sponsors align with the core belief that schools are democratic forums for education.
