OEO Programs and Events

UW Campus Event


Opportunities and Challenges of the Carnegie "Community Engaged University" Classification: What UW Can Learn from the University of Kentucky's Successful Application.

In January 2019 UW’s Office of Engagement and Outreach was established to serve as a portal of access to UW for the citizens of Wyoming (and beyond) to coordinate and streamline engagement and outreach efforts in order to achieve enhanced consistency, follow-through, and impact. As part of its strategic plan, Breaking Through: 2017-2022, UW seeks alignment with national engagement and outreach initiatives. As such, UW seeks recognition for its engagement and outreach strengths through national benchmarks, such as the Carnegie Foundation’s Classification for Community Engagement. In her talk, Dr. McCormick will share her experience leading the successful effort in 2015 for the University of Kentucky’s Carnegie Community Engagement Classification that recognizes the university’s commitment to engagement and contribution to their communities.

World to Wyoming Spring 2019 


A Journey into the Ancient Namib Desert: Rock Paintings, a Vanished People and Water Scarcity with Mark Jenkins

Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain, conceals the greatest collection of rock paintings on earth. Hidden in the shade beneath granite boulders, where an extinct tribe once escaped the scorching heat of the Namib Desert, 4000-year-old paintings depict a lost world of giraffes and elephants, snakes and springbok, bow hunters and community celebrations. On assignment for National Geographic in 2015, writer Mark Jenkins climbed Brandberg in 120 degree heat to explore this alfresco art museum and reflect on the challenges of water scarcity then and now.  This event is free and open to the public.  For more information contact engage@uwyo.edu 307-766-6119.
