Discover all that Wyoming has to offer
Be a part of the University of Wyoming's effort to enhance and advance research excellence in the state of Wyoming and beyond.
The Research & Economic Development Division is a service organization to the faculty, staff, and students of the University of
Wyoming. It is our goal to provide swift, accurate, and expert service to enhance
the research missions of individuals and various units within the University. To that
end, we have labored to place the assets within the division onto the desktops of
researchers through this website.
The Research & Economic Development Division works with faculty, staff, and students
in all seven colleges and UW's outreach programs to link research, technology transfer,
and economic development efforts to enhance federal, state, and private sector support
for faculty and graduate student scholarship. In a real sense, the division coordinates
the origination, organization, and execution of UW's research mission with principal
investigators, departments, colleges, centers, and institutes. Also, the division,
through the Research Product Center, works with faculty, staff, and student inventors
to identify, protect, and commercialize various kinds of intellectual property. These
services are provided so that scholarly activities accomplished at UW enhance the
creation of new knowledge, new applications of existing knowledge, and positively
impact economic development and society in general.
Policies and Procedures
The UW-NPS Grand Teton Research Center is a collaboration between the University of Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park.
It has been conducting research in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem since 1953. Initially
based at the Jackson Hole Biological Research Station, it relocated to the AMK Ranch
in 1978. In 2010, a ten-year general agreement was established between the university
and the park, allowing for a long-term cooperative research program. The University
of Wyoming is responsible for maintaining the buildings and surrounding land at the
AMK Ranch, while the park ensures compliance with standards for historic properties.
Progress is tracked through the Facility Management Software System (FMSS).
