Community Engagement

College is the perfect time to get involved in your community. Through the Office of Student Life, we offer a variety of programs that get students involved locally, nationally, and globally to explore social, cultural, and environmental issues while also learning about themselves and their role in a global community.


Our mission is to develop CU Denver students into advocates of sustainable change through service and collaboration with communities to address social and environmental injustices.
