As a community college keenly aware of community in its name, Western Wyoming
Community College (Western) dedicates its resources to providing high quality
learning opportunities for students and employees, to enriching the community's
cultural life, to enhancing the awareness of the community's unique heritage and
environment, and to adapting to the changing needs of local business and industry
primarily within its service area of southwest Wyoming.
In 1991, the Wyoming State Legislature adopted the following mission statement
for Wyoming community colleges under the Post Secondary Omnibus Act:
The mission of Wyoming's community colleges is to provide access to post-secondary
educational opportunities by offering broad comprehensive programs in academic as
well as vocational-technical subjects. Wyoming's community colleges are
low-tuition, open access institutions focusing on academic transfer programs,
career and occupational programs, developmental and basic skills instruction, adult
and continuing education, economic development training, public and community
services programming and student support services.
