Wyoming Goes Global: Building UW’s Strategy for the Next Century of International Research, Partnerships and Education – Conference Launching the Center for Global Studies
The purpose of the Center for Global Studies (CGS) is to advance the University of Wyoming to the next level of excellence in internationally-focused research and partnerships to address complex global problems. Its mission is to foster global and comparative scholarship and learning for the benefit of students, faculty and the broader Wyoming and national/international community. This conference formally launches the Center with day-long activities featuring panels highlighting faculty and graduate student international research from across campus, roundtable discussions on global career options featuring distinguished alumni and international studies professionals, and a public keynote address. The Center will serve as a collaboration fulcrum for faculty/students from various colleges and departments to foster cross-disciplinary research in international political, socio-economic, historical, cultural, scientific, environmental, and energy issues. The Center’s activities complement and work in conjunction with other international offices on campus to build leadership, excellence, and depth in international research and creative activities.
