Chancellors' Communique

CU in the Community, 11-7-16

Dear faculty and staff,

At both CU Denver and CU Anschutz, we pride ourselves on our contributions to the community. That’s why we’re inviting you to participate in our sixth annual CU in the Community program. The program allows you to take a half-day of work time to volunteer with the organization of your choice. It’s a great way to spend time with your colleagues outside of the office while honoring the spirit of the holiday season.

This year, we are focusing our efforts on supporting our veterans, who have sacrificed so much for our country. The program will run from Veterans Day (Friday, Nov. 11) through Presidents Day (Monday, Feb. 20).

You can volunteer at an organization in which you have a personal interest or choose from our featured partners list. Faculty and staff can choose to participate individually or with a group/department. Students and alumni are also welcome to participate with faculty and staff or individually. 

We highly encourage departments to volunteer in a group activity. It can be a fun way to bring your colleagues together outside the normal work setting—and have a great time—while contributing to our mission of improving the health and well-being of people in Colorado.

Go to the CU in the Community website to sign up or for more details.
Thanks for all you do, both for our university and for our community.
