the University of Wyoming is seeking a Director for the American Heritage Center (AHC). The AHC is one of the nation's largest archives, and in 2010, won the top award of the Society of Archivists for its advancement and archival techniques. The AHC has been recognized for techniques that emphasize "more product, less process." As a major archival repository, the AHC holds more than 3,500 manuscript collections that are regional, national, and international in scope. Its holdings draw scholars from the US and abroad.
The Director must have the vision, experience, and leadership needed to sustain and advance the American Heritage Center's stature as a research and outreach institution of national and international distinction.
The AHC is in the historic and charming city of Laramie, Wyoming. The location is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts with 250+ days of sunshine per year. Wyoming boasts a low cost of living, quality schools, and has no personal state income tax. The job, the compensation, and the region combine to make this a high quality of life opportunity.
