Corporate Giving

Corporate Giving provides crucial support to all areas of campus. Some of the most significant impacts to UW have come from the remarkable support of corporations. Gifts campus-wide have built facilities, created new programs, and underwritten research that change the world as we know it.


Williams

Hydrogen is important to our energy future. Tulsa-based energy infrastructure leader Williams supported the School of Energy Resources Hydrogen Energy Research Center (H2ERC) with a $500,000 commitment over fi ve years. This new center is dedicated to applied hydrogen research, collaboration with Wyoming stakeholders, and the growth of a hydrogen industry in the state. In 2021, Williams was a Wyoming Energy Authority grant recipient as part of the Wyoming Hydrogen Pilot Project, conducting a feasibility study to evaluate water access, compatibility, and asset integrity in support of green hydrogen production. The study is being conducted in partnership with SER.


Western Ecosystems Technology, Inc.

Since 2000, Western EcoSystems Technology, Inc.—WEST—has partnered with UW to support programs in environmental statistical analysis and data science applications. These include the WEST Research Awards for Quantitative Analysis in Wildlife and Fisheries Ecology in the College of Arts and Sciences, which goes to zoology and physiology, mathematics, and statistics grad students with statistics projects. In addition, WEST support helped UW win one of fi ve National Science Foundation grants, which came on the heels of another fi ve-year $20 million National Science Foundation grant—at the time, the largest research grant in UW history. This previous grant stimulated wideranging research into Wyoming’s water resources and advanced UW’s ability to perform data science for large teams.


Cheyenne Regional Medical Center

The world needs more nurses, and a gift of $250,000 from the Cheyenne Regional Health System helps do just that. It creates a nursing faculty position in the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing. Responsibilities include teaching, student advising, research, creative activities, service to the university and community, and administrative responsibilities. “Nursing requires extensive and lifelong education to stay on top of all the advances in health care,” says Cheyenne Regional Chief Nursing Offi cer Tracy Garcia. “This partnership will help ensure that nurses in our health system and region have an opportunity to continue to learn, a vital part of providing high-quality nursing care.”
