Peter M. and Paula Green Johnson Career Center

The Founding

When Peter M. Johnson (B.S. '72) and Paula Green Johnson (B.S. '72) launched the Peter M. and Paula Green Johnson Career Center at the University of Wyoming College of Business, they were trying to solve a basic problem. That is, how to help students get jobs in the fields they'd trained for at UW. Their answer to this fundamental question is a key reason they are co-recipients of the University Medallion Service Award for 2014.

The idea for the center started in 2004, when Peter Johnson served as the first Executive in Residence at the College of Business. He had been asked to draw on his expertise as President of the Sinclair Oil Corporation's oil division to speak to students.

"I prepared my thoughts primarily around how you succeeded in a career, like engineering, law, business, and so forth, UW hasn't finished the job until they provide adequate assistance finding a job in that field," he says. 

So, in 2007, the couple donated $1 million to endow the Career Center, which assists business students with comprehensive career planning services that start at the beginning of a student's college journey.
