Listening Session Wednesday on UW Engagement Task Force Report

April 23, 2018

The University of Wyoming’s Engagement Task Force has completed its draft report and is seeking input on the document from the UW community.

The report, “Envisioning Community Engagement and Outreach at the University of Wyoming,” may be found at

A public listening session is scheduled Wednesday, April 25, from 3:10-5 p.m. in Room 215 of the Classroom Building. Engagement Task Force members will be on hand to walk through the report’s key recommendations, answer questions and receive feedback. The event will be broadcast live via WyoCast at

Additionally, comments are being accepted in a three-question survey that may be accessed here. The survey will close at 5 p.m. Friday, April 27.

Input from both the listening session and the survey will be used by the task force to finalize the report in May.

“We are excited to share this report with the UW community and look forward to the feedback we receive,” says Professor Jean Garrison, who chairs the group.

The 16-member Engagement Task Force was appointed by President Laurie Nichols to help UW meet its objective of collaborating with constituents and partners to improve and enhance the health and well-being of the state’s communities and environments, as outlined in UW’s strategic plan, “Breaking Through: 2017-2022.” The group’s specific charge was to make recommendations to UW’s leadership regarding the structure and function for a new Office of Engagement and Outreach, and to work to be recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as a “community engaged university.”
