2014-2015 Catalog

Outreach Centers

In this rapidly changing society, many people need to obtain new skills and knowledge in order to succeed in their professions or to be more active and committed members of their community. WWCC is committed to providing such learning experiences, not only to students who can attend on campus but also to students who are bound to jobs and responsibilities in the College’s Outreach areas.

The mission of WWCC is to provide courses and programs to educational opportunities throughout Sweetwater, Sublette, Carbon, Lincoln, and Uinta counties. The Distance Learning department coordinates credit offerings in Afton, Big Piney, Baggs, Cokeville, Hanna/Elk Mountain, Evanston, Farson, Kemmerer, Lyman, Mountain View, Pinedale, Rawlins, Saratoga and their surrounding areas. Each of these communities has a coordinator who initiates and implements the local credit programs. To meet the varied needs of these students, Western offers courses through a variety of distance education media including internet and compressed video. Credit courses at all sites adhere to the same standards and requirements set by Western Wyoming Community College.

Non-credit community service and continuing education courses are provided at most Outreach sites through WWCC’s partnership with BOCES. Citizens in these communities can enhance their personal knowledge or improve their job skills. These courses can vary in length from a few hours to an entire semester.

Residents seeking additional information about the WWCC programs or courses in their area should contact their local coordinator. Coordinators’ names and telephone numbers may be obtained by calling the WWCC Distance Learning office at 382-1807 or looking at our web site at www.wwcc.wy.edu/dist_ed/outreach.htm
