Marvin Millgate Community Engagement Awards

Outreach and Engagement with the state are core goals of the University of Wyoming and integral to our land-grant mission.  Building a strong culture of engagement and collaboration involving the exchange of knowledge and resources means developing partnerships in a context of reciprocity with the citizens and institutions of Wyoming, the nation and the world.  The Marvin Millgate Community Engagement Awards have been established by the President Laurie S. Nichols and Provost Kate Miller to recognize individuals and groups at the University of Wyoming and in the community who have rendered exceptional engagement and service to Wyoming communities.
