Walter Tribley photo“Student success and community success are our highest priorities. We interpret that to mean ensuring students earn a degree or certificate in the most affordable and efficient way possible. We take seriously our responsibility to partner with our communities so that our unique capabilities as an educational institution are aligned with community needs and plans. We are updating and expanding our campus to meet student needs and support programming in areas important to our region.”

– Walter Tribley, NWCCD President

Strategic Planning

Our strategic initiatives are driven by our Mission as well as environmental scans that integrate data about the college, our community, and the market as a whole. As a public institution, we also are guided by State Interests and Strategies as set forth in the Wyoming Community College Commission Strategic Plan.

Financial planning supports the strategic planning process. Master facilities planning is aligned with our strategic planning process to ensure that capital priorities respond to actual needs. The Master Facilities Plan includes campus maps showing existing and planned facilities.
