Mission Statement


University of Wyoming Geography integrates studies of the connections we have to each other and the world through holistic education in environment and society utilizing geospatial techniques and approaches. We promote the approach to interdisciplinary research and teaching in an increasingly connected world shaped by rapid environmental and technological changes. The ability to understand changing global connections is crucial for students today as they prepare for the challenges of tomorrow, and UW Geography is a home for this kind of learning.

Incorporating spatial perspectives, analyses, and techniques in the context of environment, society, and economics, the interdisciplinary geospatial relationships empower this interconnectivity. Our faculty have expertise in cultural geography, political geography, climatology, geovisualization, geospatial analysis, big data science, GIS, planning, environmental change, biogeography, and conservation. We work throughout the nation and internationally on a wide range of issues, from drivers of conflict and social change to drivers of drought and ecosystem change. Our students work with an engaged and dynamic group of faculty who nurture them to develop and use spatial knowledge and skills to inform solutions for twenty-first century challenges.
