Dr. Doug McGee is a Wyoming native who currently teaches courses in political science and economics on the Gillette College campus of NWCCD. His areas of specialty include American and Wyoming government, international relations, Latin American politics, and the politics of energy. Current research interests explore the relationship between natural resource dependence and trajectories for political development and economic diversification in Wyoming and elsewhere around the American West.
In addition to his teaching and research roles, Doug serves as the faculty advisor to the Gillette College Student Senate and is involved in a variety of community outreach projects to stimulate community involvement and discussion on issues of vital interest to our district. His most recent effort in this regard was to organize a symposium entitled “Energy as a Source for Economic Diversification” that brought in experts from around the state to discuss how to move the Powder River Basin’s economic development forward in the most practical and efficient way. In his spare time, Doug enjoys Wyoming’s beautiful outdoors and spending time with his wife Maggie, his four children, three step-children, and a motley assortment of pets.
