Professor studying brain simulation.Advancing Research and Scholarship at the University of Wyoming: A Focus on Society’s Grand Challenges

The purpose of this planning activity is to deeply engage the campus communities in identifying and planning for UW’s pursuit of grand research challenges. Investing in and pursuing such transdisciplinary challenges will enable the University of Wyoming to assert leadership and be among leaders in select areas as it serves the state, region, nation, and globe. This activity will identify areas where investments in research capacity are needed, where incentives to promote vibrant partnering need to be created, where opportunities to align and identify academic coursework with Grand Challenges should be sought, and where opportunities for Grand Challenge research to have an economic impact are high. Girding all of this is the requirement that Grand Challenge research serves as a powerful platform for student education, and for educational outreach to citizens of Wyoming and the Mountain West.
