Take a few minutes to complete this survey being conducted by the Laramie Town Gown Association (LTGA) regarding campus and community perceptions of each other.
Town-Gown Survey to Gauge Connections, Opportunities for Growth
Contact Information: Mayor Andi Summerville at asummerville@cityoflar...amie.org
The Laramie Town Gown Association (LTGA) is conducting a baseline survey of people in Laramie, including community members, students at the University of Wyoming, Laramie County Community College’s Albany County campus and WyoTech.
The LTGA is a partnership among the City of Laramie, Albany County, UW, LCCC-Albany County Campus, WyoTech and the Prevention Management Organization of Wyoming (Albany County). The purpose of the Association is to foster cooperation and collaboration among institutions of higher education and the community around topics including off-campus student life and housing, public safety, neighborhood relations and community wellness.
Organizers hope the data gathered by the Optimal College Town Assessment (OCTA) can help the LTGA build more productive relationships. “The survey data will guide future initiatives and priorities of the Laramie Town Gown Association” said Sean Blackburn, UW Vice President for Student Affairs. The survey is a widely used instrument that helps measure campus and community perceptions of each other. It also includes questions related to the impact of student alcohol and drug use on town-gown relations, an issue of great significance in Laramie with three educational institutions.
The survey takes 8-10 minutes to complete and is available from Monday, February 12 through Friday, March 2, 2018.

Lots of good questions about ENDOW’s startup ecosystem recommendation. This piece by AOL founder Steve Case lays out why the development of a startup ecosystem ...is so important for places like Wyoming.
“Startups account for nearly all net new job creation. In order to build the economies of the future, governments will need to have deeper and richer relationships with the startup community. Government policy can play an important role in spurring innovation economies by clearing regulatory hurdles, providing crucial resources or investments, and enacting entrepreneur-friendly tax incentives.”
