The University of Colorado Denver will again honor the spirit of the season with the CU in the Community campaign (formerly Giving Back). The 2012 featured partner is Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver.
All faculty and staff will be given one half-day of work time (four hours) to go into the community and participate in a volunteer activity of their choice. Individuals may choose to use their time to participate in a volunteer activity of which they are already a part, or you may participate in a group activity with others from your area or across the university. This year the program has been expanded to include students and alumni.
After your volunteer activity, you'll be asked to visit the CU in the Community website to provide a brief synopsis of your accomplishments. These stories will be used to provide a more complete picture of the contributions our university makes to our community every day. The campaign will also seek to quantify the total volunteer activities and breadth of activities.
