One Step To Go For New Degree Program Approval

In a unanimous decision Thursday, the Wyoming Community College Commission voted to approve Central Wyoming College’s BAS degree in Organizational Management and Leadership with two options, Tribal Leadership and Business Entrepreneurship. This completes six steps of a seven-step process for the college, with a Higher Learning Commission visit remaining. In her presentation to the commission, Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Kathy Wells explained that in preparation for offering the proposed degree, CWC had conducted surveys of potential employers which showed that 59% indicated a “strong need” for the program, 81% of those who hire would give BAS graduates a hiring preference, and 74% indicated they would pay BAS graduates “substantially or slightly more” than associate degree graduates. In addition, 50% said they would provide some kind of support for current employees to pursue a BAS degree, whether it be through a flexible work schedule, tuition assistance, or paid work time to attend classes.
