UW Board of Trustees Conducts Presidential Search

The Board of Trustees of the University of Wyoming is conducting a search for a president with bold vision, high energy, an ability to work effectively with diverse constituents and the capability to lead the institution in fulfilling the university's public land-grant mission.

Founded in 1886, UW is the only public university in Wyoming, providing baccalaureate, graduate and professional education, research and outreach. It enrolls more than 12,400 undergraduate and graduate students, and employs over 2,800 benefitted faculty and staff members.

UW combines major-university benefits and small-school advantages, offering 200 programs of study, an outstanding faculty, and world-class research and teaching facilities, all set against the backdrop of Wyoming's beautiful landscapes. The main campus is in Laramie, a community of approximately 31,000 sandwiched between the Medicine Bow and Laramie mountain ranges two hours north of Denver.

The university also maintains the UW-Casper and Agricultural Extension Offices scattered throughout the state's 23 counties and on the Wind River Indian Reservation. UW has strong working relationships with Wyoming's seven community colleges and economic development groups in key areas of the state, as well as the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center. It is a Carnegie doctoral/research university with high research activity.

The state of Wyoming invests strongly in higher education, providing the highest amount of state support per student in the nation. Consequently, UW has the lowest in-state undergraduate tuition among the nation's public doctoral universities. The university also benefits from a privately funded endowment of $500 million.

The president reports directly to the Board of Trustees, whose 12 voting members are appointed by the governor. As the state's flagship and land-grant institution, UW envisions its next president to be a visionary leader who understands and appreciates the unique relationship the university has with the state, its residents and industries.
