Professor Weldon Lodwick

Math Clinic students worked with the City and County of Denver on manpower planning and snow removal, saving taxpayer money. "That was a classical graph theory problem," says Professor Weldon Lodwick, current coordinator of the clinic. "The clinic is really up to the students’ interests and needs. It is open ended, and it gives students experience researching actual problems."

Over the years, students have worked with companies to help iron out satellite schedules, knit space images together and improve computer analysis of cancer tissues. Each class has 10-15 students who work on the company’s problem for a semester or for a full year. "We all learn and the business benefits," Lodwick says.

The data show that across the nation, the victims of domestic abuse often are put back into contact with perpetrators as a result of child custody orders. While the data may call attention to the problem, the stories told by the victims might move people to act to solve it. That is the hope of Sharon K. Araji, professor of sociology, who created the video "Listen to Our Voices" as a more broadly accessible companion to her academic research. It has been a hit with community groups, and Araji has developed a training package for police, attorneys, judges, custody evaluators and shelters.
