Cowboy Parents|University of Wyoming's Parents & Family Association

What our parents are saying:

“What an awesome opportunity, as a parent, to be involved with Cowboy Parents Council!  We are given a direct voice to UW, as our opinions are sought and valued in making decisions on issues that directly affect the education of our students.  As we meet with UW Administrators/staff, tour new facilities, and volunteer at UW events, I've been given an insight into UW that I would have never had without being on the council.  I've been able to share this journey with my three boys and I have enjoyed every minute!”
