Welcome to the Office of Engagement and Outreach

Building from UW’s Strategic Plan, Breaking Through: 2017-2022, the Office of Engagement and Outreach (OEO) has been created to be a portal of access to UW for the citizens of Wyoming (and beyond) and to coordinate and streamline engagement and outreach efforts to achieve enhanced consistency, follow-through, and impact.  OEO responds to the challenge in UW’s strategic plan to commit itself to “scholarship, outreach and service that extend our human talent and technological capacity to serve the people in our communities, our state, the nation, and the world.”   At the heart of that commitment are the values of engagement and communication, and the specific goal to “improve and enhance the health and well-being of our communities and environments through outreach programs and in collaboration with our constituents and partners.” Building on our history and identity as Wyoming’s sole land-grant and public flagship institution we will work to implement a new vision for engagement and outreach with our communities. We look forward to partnering with campus and statewide constituents to elevate the university’s already substantial efforts in community engagement and outreach. 

OEO Contact Information

Reports and Strategic Planning

Reports and Strategic Planning

UW’s Engagement Task Force completed its final report, Envisioning Community Engagement and Outreach, in May 2018.  This report and the supporting materials have been posted to share with UW and Wyoming communities.  A strategic plan will be completed in Spring 2019 and posted. More information on the Engagement Task Force report.

Campus-wide survey

 In the spring of 2018, a faculty and staff survey was deployed to each UW unit to further inventory specific engagement activities and community impact.  The campus-wide survey represents a conservative estimate of UW’s statewide outreach and engagement and provides data to understand the wins we should celebrate and where we can strategically invest. Results of the voluntary survey completed by 83 UW units show 1,296,287 individuals across all counties were served by UW engagement/outreach efforts in 2016-17, and the 666,795 contact hours for these efforts represent the equivalent of 321 fulltime employees (FTEs).  Select reports and maps are available here.
