About The Partnership
The mission of the Wyoming School-University Partnership is to
implement the collaborative efforts of the University of Wyoming, member
school districts, the state department of education, and the community
colleges in carrying out simultaneously the improvement of teacher
education and the renewal of public schools.
The activities of the Partnership are driven by its values. These basic values are fundamental:
- We value children, and we want each child to reach his/her full learning potential.
- We value teachers and administrators and desire to enable each to be
capable of delivering to our children the quality of education that
will permit each to reach their full learning potential.
- We value collaboration - working together to solve problems in order
that quality education can be raised to the highest possible level.
The Wyoming School-University Partnership brings together K-12 teachers and administrators, faculty from the University of Wyoming College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences and other stakeholders in the education of children and their teachers to study and promote the role of public education in preparing students for life and work in a democracy.
The Partnership is supported through institutional dues from member school districts, the University of Wyoming College of Arts & Sciences, the Wyoming Department of Education, and the Wyoming Education Association.

Connection with NNER
The Partnership is a member of the National Network of Education Renewal (NNER) (Username: member Password: NN3R20!2), which works to provide equal access to quality learning for all students, promote responsible stewardship of our schools and universities, improve teaching and learning through pedagogy that nurtures and challenges all learners and provides students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become fully engaged participants in our democratic society. John Goodlad refers to the NNER as the proofing sites for the ongoing research and inquiry conducted by the Institute for Educational Inquiry.
