Serving Casper for Over 30 Years

In 1976 the University of Wyoming and Casper College pioneered a new era in the delivery of higher education in central Wyoming by forming a partnership to create the University of Wyoming/Casper College Center. Using the personnel, services, and facilities of both institutions, students are able to earn a variety of bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Approximately 700 students enroll in UW courses through the UW/CC Center each semester, and more than 3,000 students have received their UW degrees. Part of the Outreach School, UW/CC Center is the location in Casper at which students have access to UW statewide degree programs and courses.

The center was established to meet the needs of students unable to move to Laramie. These students tend to be nontraditional students who may be older or have families, homes, or jobs in the Casper area. The center meets the academic needs of these students. Courses are taught by resident and visiting faculty who are regular or part-time members of UW academic departments. A full-service office handles admission, registration, financial aid, and advising.

Classes are taught on the Casper College campus and at the separate UW Outreach Building. The Outreach Building has facilities designed to receive the delivery of statewide classes and degree programs via video conferencing and audio teleconferencing technologies. Audio and video technologies also are available in 4 Administration Building and 136 Administration Building on the Casper College campus.

Director’s Message

Dear Student,

Winston Churchill once gave a commencement speech that ran only 9 words long: “Never give up. Never give up. Never give up.” A reasonable commencement speech today could run the same length: “Never stop learning. Never stop learning. Never stop learning.” How can a person hope to remain economically competitive if he or she doesn’t add new skills? For the sake of one’s career, we must never stop learning. Many UW/CC students are parents. How will our children learn about the importance of ideas, the wonders of science, and the beauty of the arts unless we model for them how these things impact our lives? For the sake of our families we should never stop learning. Finally, how will our community grow unless persons challenge themselves to try new things by volunteering, serving on a non-pro t board, or establishing a civic group? For the well-being of our community, we need to never stop learning.


Brent Pickett, PH.D.
