UW at Casper’s New BAS Program Director

The University of Wyoming at Casper is excited to welcome Josh Valk as new BAS Program Director


The University of Wyoming at Casper is pleased to welcome Josh Valk, Ph.D., MBA, MSPsy, MIS as the Director of their Bachelor of Science (BAS) Program in Casper, Wyoming.

The BAS program at UW-C offers an online degree in Organizational Leadership and in Career Technical Education. The BAS program prides itself on flexible coursework to meet student’s career goals.

Dr. Valk moved to Casper from Utah where he was the Associate Provost at Independence University. His family—Wife, Monica and their three daughters: Skylar (13), Mikaela (12), and Summer (10)—have been checking into Wyoming as a place to set down roots for quite a while. When the position at UW-C became available, he knew it would be the right fit. They are all excited for Wyoming’s national parks, sites, outdoor living, and opportunities.

Dr. Valk’s background in higher education is vast. That is one of the reasons he was so happy to take on the challenge of growing the BAS program at UW-C. “I was a non-traditional online student in higher education for many years, and across many programs, so it is of personal importance to me. In addition, I have served as an instructor, administrator, and doctoral dissertation chair in the same environment. Non-traditional and distance learning is specifically what I’m interested in because of my own experiences,” Valk smiles. “I have goals for the BAS program because it is such an affordable way to get a degree and thrive in your career.”

“The University of Wyoming is so well known,” Valk continues, “that we have an opportunity to put our program on the map both locally and nationally.”

The University of Wyoming at Casper welcomes those who enjoy small-class environments, intensive class discussions, and opportunities for self-direction, self- reflection, and scholarly activity. Their faculty members encourage and support both the self-examination and growth of students.
