Supporting Wyoming’s

The students at Wyoming’s community colleges are the future workforce of Wyoming; they will shape Wyoming’s future. By supporting the community colleges, we are building a stronger Wyoming.

Community colleges award over 3,000 associate degrees and certificates.
37% of graduates report full-time employment six months to one year after graduation.
42% of graduates report part-time employment six months to one year after graduation.
These graduates become Wyoming’s workforce and community members.
