The University of Wyoming is a land-grant university located in Laramie, Wyoming, situated on Wyoming’s high Laramie Plains, at an elevation of 7,220 feet (2194 m), between the Laramie and Snowy Range mountains. It is known as UW (often pronounced “U-Dub”) to people close to the university. The university was founded in March 1886, four years before the territory was admitted as the 44th state, and opened in September 1887. The University of Wyoming is unusual in that its location within the state is written into the state’s constitution.[5] The university also offers outreach education in communities throughout Wyoming and online.

The University of Wyoming consists of seven colleges: agriculture and natural resources, arts and sciences, business, education, engineering and applied sciences, health sciences, and law. The university offers over 190 undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs including Doctor of Pharmacy and Juris Doctor.[6] The University of Wyoming was featured in the 2011 Princeton Review Best 373 Colleges.[7]

In addition to on-campus classes in Laramie, the university’s Outreach School offers more than 41[8] degree, certificate and endorsement programs to distance learners across the state and beyond.[9] These programs are delivered through the use of technology, such as online and video conferencing classes. The Outreach School has nine regional centers in the state, with several on community college campuses, to give Wyoming residents access to a university education without relocating to Laramie.[10]
