Center for Local Government Research and Training

The mission of the Center for Local Government Research and Training is to support and enhance the governance of Colorado's cities, counties and special districts.  We pursue this mission through three interrelated activities: Research, Public Service and Professional Development - which we seek to pursue in partnership with other organizations that are striving to enhance the governance of Colorado's localities.

The Center provides relevant and timely research, training, facilitation, and other outreach services. These activities cut across substantive policy issues of interest to local and regional communities, such as education, local and regional governance, environmental and sustainability issues, public health, and public finance. The Center also serves as a portal to access resources related to these and other issues within the School of Public Affairs and the University of Colorado System.
