About the Partnership

Who We Are:

The Wyoming School-University Partnership is a statewide collaborative group of school districts, community colleges, the University of Wyoming, and state education organizations, working together to simultaneously improve teacher education and renew public schooling.

Our Vision:

The vision of the Wyoming School-University Partnership is continuous and collaborative engagement in a process of ongoing renewal among Wyoming educational partners.

Our Mission:

Member organizations work together to ensure that students at all levels reach their full learning potential and that educators are prepared to provide high quality education.

The Wyoming School-University Partnership, founded in 1986, is one of the original settings of the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER). Though NNER was disbanded in 2022, WSUP continues to be guided by NNER’s foundational beliefs and promotes close cooperation among its member organizations.

NNER’s foundational beliefs are as follows:

  • We are all responsible for improving the realities of our schools, universities, and communities.
  • We believe that all students, regardless of race, poverty, geography, or any other circumstance, deserve equal access to high quality learning and enriching life experiences.
  • We believe that deep, enduring teaching and learning occurs when students are both loved and challenged.
  • By embracing the above beliefs, we are engaged in what inspires us most - educating and preparing students to fully engage as considerate and critical citizens who know their value and capacity to make a profound impact in this world. 


The Wyoming School-University Partnership brings together K-12 teachers and administrators, faculty from the University of Wyoming College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences and other stakeholders in the education of children and their teachers to study and promote the role of public education in preparing students for life and work in a democracy.

The Partnership is supported through institutional dues from member school districts, the University of Wyoming College of Arts & Sciences, the Wyoming Department of Education, and the Wyoming Education Association.
