Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program

The Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program in the School of Politics, Public Affairs, and International Studies at the University of Wyoming works in conjunction with university, community college and K-12 partners to host projects and meaningful dialogue on local, state, national, and international issues of significant interest to Wyoming students and communities. The Program supports three program areas – 1) organizing community and school programming, 2) funding student research/internships, and 3) supporting faculty engagement projects.

 Dear Friends:

Thank you for helping us meet our goals on UW Giving Day! We had 89+ donors and have raised about $30,000 for civics education and social studies teachers in Wyoming. We appreciate your generous support for the Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement K-12 Curriculum Challenge.

As a result of the incredible response, you may have experienced issues with making a gift through UW's Giving Day website. If you were able to get through and designate a gift to the Wallop Program, or another favorite program, thank you! If you’re still having a problem making a gift, please call the UW Foundation anytime today at (307) 766-6300 and they will gladly process your Giving Day gift over the phone.

Thank you for being part of the Wallop Team.

Best, Jean Garrison, Jason McConnell, and the Wallop Team
