Wyoming Educational Attainment Council Sets Public Input Sessions Nov. 29

November 21, 2018

Wyoming residents have the opportunity to discuss ways to overcome barriers to completing postsecondary degrees and certificates during meetings at the University of Wyoming and the state’s community colleges Thursday, Nov. 29.

The facilitated sessions will be conducted by the Wyoming Educational Attainment Executive Council, created in August by Gov. Matt Mead. The sessions, all of which will take place from 6-7:30 p.m., are specifically designed to focus the state’s approach on the needs of local communities.

The council is aggressively moving forward with developing a five-year and 10-year educational master plan to reach the state’s educational attainment goals established in the governor’s ENDOW initiative as a major strategy to diversify Wyoming’s economy.

The public sessions’ focus is to gain crucial perspectives from stakeholders throughout the state to identify the barriers residents face to access and complete higher education certificates and degrees. The open forum discussions will seek perspectives from attendees for specific strategies to create a college-going culture from K-12 to working adults.

The council also will provide a Facebook Live link for participation from individuals who are unable to attend the sessions. The link for the Facebook Live session is, and individuals can access the link Nov. 29 from 6-7:30 p.m.
