THE SHERIDAN COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING
Sheridan College’s comprehensive programs in Agriculture are augmented by a supportive and growing relationship with the University of Wyoming. The collaborations include:
- A 3+1 degree partnership in Agroecology with a Horticulture emphasis: Students complete an associates in agriculture or horticulture at Sheridan College and then can complete a third year of University of Wyoming classes towards an Agroecology Bachelors of Science.
- Two full-time University of Wyoming professors are located in Sheridan: Dr. Valtcho Jeliazkov is the Director of the Agriculture Research Station, and Dr. Sadanand Dhekney is the Whitney Endowed position in horticulture. Both professors teach some of the upper division Agroecology courses in the 3+1. They also provide a significant opportunity for our students to participate in research-related internships.
- UW’s Agriculture Extension and Sheridan College’s Agriculture programs have collaborated with others in organizing and offering the Local Food Expo, which has been a huge success the last couple of years.
- Sheridan College and UW faculty have the opportunity to collaborate in grant-funded research projects.
- Guest lecturers from UW have contributed to Plant Science and Natural Resource lecture series at Sheridan College.
