Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program

The World Needs More Authentic Voices

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.

Current projects include the K-12 Curriculum project providing a library of virtual resources for K-12 Social Studies Teacher for their classroom use. Visit the Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program main page for more information on this and other offerings. 


Reports and Strategic Planning

Reports and Strategic Planning

UW’s Engagement Task Force completed its final report, Envisioning Community Engagement and Outreach, in May 2018.  This report and the supporting materials have been posted to share with UW and Wyoming communities.  A strategic plan will be completed in Spring 2019 and posted. More information on the Engagement Task Force report.

Campus-wide survey

 In the spring of 2018, a faculty and staff survey was deployed to each UW unit to further inventory specific engagement activities and community impact.  The campus-wide survey represents a conservative estimate of UW’s statewide outreach and engagement and provides data to understand the wins we should celebrate and where we can strategically invest. Results of the voluntary survey completed by 83 UW units show 1,296,287 individuals across all counties were served by UW engagement/outreach efforts in 2016-17, and the 666,795 contact hours for these efforts represent the equivalent of 321 fulltime employees (FTEs).  Select reports and maps are available here.
