The mission of the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research (WIHR) is to promote, support, and showcase humanities scholarship across the university and the state. In addition to sponsoring invited speakers, events, discussion groups, and fellows, WIHR supports individual and collaborative research projects, as well as more specific individual needs related to research projects. WIHR encourages the engagement of UW humanities faculty with local, national, and international scholarly communities and engages in critical reflection on the nature of the humanities and their role in a civil democracy.
