Engagement Database Project Presents Awards for New Listings
January 12, 2009 — More than $400 has been awarded to those who have successfully submitted organizations to be added to the UW Engagement Database Project.
University staff and faculty members can receive $20 gift certificates from the UW Bookstore by helping identify and add new programs to database.
"The UW Engagement Database (www.uwyo.edu/uwengage) is a tool to help us connect people with university engagement resources," says Duane Williams, associate director of the UW Cooperative Extension Service and project originator. "The purpose of the participant reward is to utilize everyone's knowledge of public engagement activities to help make the database more comprehensive and useful."
Twenty organizations have been added, representing nearly a 40-percent expansion. Due to its success, Williams is extending the Participant Reward Program.
Here is a list of the new programs:
American Heritage Center
Cent$ible Nutrition Program (CNP)
College of Business Intern Program
Community Enrichment Programs
Counselor Education Training Clinic
ESL Teacher Endorsement Program
EVOLVE Leadership Institutes
Extension Entomology Clinic
Office of Institutional Analysis
