Wyoming Community Colleges Annual Partnership Report, 2004
Wyoming Community College Commission
The Annual Partnership Report is a collection of all established partnerships that Wyoming community colleges cultivated and maintained for fiscal year 2004. Serving as transfer preparation institutions, vocational educators, providers of workforce training and personal development education, and cultural centers, Wyoming comprehensive community colleges recognize the need for collaboration, diversity, and cooperation. Recognizing this, Wyoming community colleges have established and maintain numerous partnerships and agreements. Wyoming community colleges participated in a multitude of mutually beneficial partnerships that vary in nature, and range from a student service to a community service focus. Common themes, such as workforce development and adult literacy, do exist across the college system. A new section was added this year to specifically highlight the partnerships that exist between the University of Wyoming and the community colleges. Additionally, the colleges partner with many state agencies including the Departments of Workforce Services, Family Services, Education, and Employment to better serve the needs of their constituents both academically and socially. However, just as the communities in Wyoming differ from one another, so do the partnerships undertaken by the separate community colleges. These relationships exist and thrive in the communities and the state and are so natural that many can go overlooked. This document looks at the partnerships undertaken by the community colleges.
