Agency Background & Structure
The University of Wyoming was established as the state’s Morrill Act land-grant university in 1886 and serves as Wyoming’s only university. Given the University of Wyoming's nationally unique status as the only public university in the state, UW serves simultaneously as a land-grant, flagship, and research institution. Its commitments to scholarship, outreach and service extend to all corners of the state and require continuous assessment of the needs and values of a broad range of internal and external constituent and stake-holder groups.
