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 Wallop Civic Engagement Program offers an opportunity to build upon the legacy of Senator Malcolm Wallop’s distinguished career as a public servant, as well as the generosity of his friends and supporters, who have helped to honor him by supporting this initiative.  Senator Wallop’s life was about conversations around ideas, and the Wallop Civic Engagement Program credits that legacy by providing a platform for those making the effort to learn and champion their beliefs. You can learn more about Senator Wallop at this link. (opens in a new window)
  
We embrace UW’s land-grant mission by committing to a partnership with Wyoming communities and educators around the state. We work together as an intellectual community to foster excellence in teaching, scholarship, innovation and creative endeavor—to engage in matters of public concern and to provide students with experiences that prepare them to meet tomorrow’s challenges with sustainable solutions.

Profiles in Wyoming Resilience

Amplifying Community Voices – Profiles in Wyoming Resilience and Growth

A successful effort to diversify and grow Wyoming’s economy, address workforce development and retention, and to leverage educational/training programs to retain our talent and promote community resilience starts by gathering the right data. We seek your participation to get a better picture of how Wyomingites perceive both barriers and opportunities to success, as they pursue educational achievement and workforce development/employment opportunities across the state. 

For more information on our latest project and how you can participate visit the Wyoming Resilience project page.
