Meet Dr. Robert Sternberg:
After an international search, Robert J. Sternberg joined the University of Wyoming on July 1, 2013, as its 24th president. Considered one of most highly regarded researchers and authors in psychology and psychiatry in the world today, he also holds tenure at the rank of professor in the Department of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences and a secondary such appointment in the Department of Professional Studies in the College of Education. He is also an Honorary Professor at the University of Heidelberg in Germany.
Sternberg's career in higher education has spanned more than 40 years. A native of New Jersey, Sternberg first attended Yale University, where he graduated summa cum laude in 1972 with his bachelor's degree in psychology. He earned his Ph.D. in the same discipline from Stanford University in 1975. He also holds 13 honorary doctorates from 12 different countries.
After holding administrative and faculty positions at Yale University and Tufts University, Sternberg was appointed in 2010 as the Provost and Senior Vice President; Regents Professor of Psychology and Education; and the George Kaiser Family Foundation Chair in Ethical Leadership at Oklahoma State University.
Pledging to help lead the University of Wyoming to prominence as one of the nation's top land-grant universities, Sternberg's priorities for UW include a focus on student retention and graduation; hiring and developing outstanding faculty; education outreach and economic development efforts around the state; collaborations with business and industry, government and community organizations; promotion of the arts and humanities; enhancement of student life; development of ethical leadership; financial controls; and broad participation in and transparency of university governance.
Sternberg is married to Karin Sternberg, whose Ph.D. in psychology is from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. She currently has an appointment as an adjunct faculty member in Department of Psychology at the University of Wyoming. They are the parents of triplets-Samuel, Brittany, and Melody. Sternberg also has two grown children from his first marriage, Seth and Sara, and one grandchild, Ezra.
