Wyoming Catholic College President Embraces Mission of New Evangelization

Dr. Kevin Roberts, the new president of Wyoming Catholic College, describes the College as “one of a kind,” in an interview with The National Catholic Register.

Roberts was recently inaugurated as the second president of WCC. He has goals of increasing enrollment to 200 students and taking an active part in the new evangelization at WCC, according to The Register.

“…I actually think it is very appropriate that a small Catholic school in Wyoming would be leading the New Evangelization, because of the Western culture of working hard, playing hard, knowing your books, being a great neighbor and understanding how to do a number of things in the outdoors. These are all ways that are very appealing to people. Ultimately, the New Evangelization is about finding ways to engage our brothers and sisters in Christ in a conversation.”

Roberts emphasized the College’s outdoor leadership program, in which students lead a number of outdoor trips during their four years, and are even required to take courses working with horses, according to The Register.

“What happens is not just the gaining of further outdoor skills, and the further enrichment of this great community, but, most importantly, the students are honing these leadership skills.”

The academic curriculum at WCC is completely “integrated,” according to Roberts, and this makes a difference in student interactions on campus.

“We learn from the masters of history, particularly the masters of Western civilization and the Church… students are talking about the same thing, they’re asking the same questions and trying to answer the same questions.”

The Register reports that, for Roberts, the most important mission of WCC is to graduate “well-formed, engaged Roman Catholics.” The hope is that these students will be leaders in the new evangelization because of their time at the College.

Wyoming Catholic College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
