UW Seeks Input on Engagement Task Force Draft Report
The University of Wyoming is seeking input from the university community on the UW Engagement Task Force’s recently completed draft report and has scheduled a listening session to gather comments, UW says.
The task force was appointed by UW President Laurie Nichols, as part of the university’s strategic plan “Breaking Through: 2017-2022.” The goal of the task force is to collaborate with partners and constituents of UW and to improve and enhance the health and well-being of the state’s communities.
“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, in a statement.
The public listening session on the report, “Envisioning Community Engagement and Outreach at the University of Wyoming,” is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25 from 3:10 to 5 p.m. in Room 215 of the Classroom building. Members of the Engagement Task Force will be present to walk through the report’s key recommendations as well as to answer questions and receive feedback.
Along with the listening session, comments can be submitted through a three-question survey.
The group is tasked with making recommendations to UW’s leadership about the operation of a new Office of Engagement and Outreach as well as to be recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as a “community engaged university.”
The task force will take comments from the listening session and the survey and use them to finalize the report in May.
