"Education is not the filling of a
pail, but the lighting of a fire."
W. B. Yeats
The programs of the University of Wyoming Outreach School are well defined by Yeats’ definition of education: we provide opportunities for learners of many ages, interests, locations, and motivations to discover the fire of education that will in many ways enhance their lives and improve their communities. For us, this is an exciting, rewarding endeavor that is worth our investment. We invite alumni, friends, and supporters of the Outreach School to be part of a network of programs that will help the university fulfill commitments to learning and support learners within their own communities.
"Learning is not obtained by
chance; it must be sought for with ardor and
attended to with diligence."
In order to meet the growth in a number and variety of learners, the Outreach School must be able to help attract and support the finest UW programs and faculty, encourage and sustain learners, and develop and maintain the most stable, robust, and effective technological infrastructure to connect learners to the university. A partnership with alumni, friends, and supporters will allow the Outreach School to support access and learning opportunities that accommodate the continuing growth in the number of learners we serve and the variety of programs we offer.
The Outreach School will focus on four areas of
distinction as we channel our efforts to support the university’s goals:
Much of what the Outreach School will be able to accomplish in the future will be through partnerships that create productive synergisms for the effective utilization of intellectual, technological, and financial resources. We invite your support for Outreach School programs that will enhance opportunities for learning and access and allow us to accommodate the rapid growth of the numbers of learners we serve and the learning opportunities we provide.
Our funding and development priorities are:
"We judge ourselves by
what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
