About Us

Centers and Institutes


Seven centers are housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Each center has a unique focus; they all provide students and faculty the ability to extend the scholarly and academic work beyond the classroom and into the vibrant, urban community where UC Denver is located.

Center for Computational Mathematics 

Center for Computational Mathematics

The Center for Computational Mathematics was established to foster research in one of the discipline's most exciting new field. With extensive ties with industry along the Front Range and government laboratories across the country, the Center provides outstanding opportunities for motivated students to receive additional training and experience. For more information, contact Jan Mandel at 303-556-4475.

Center for Ethics and Community 

Center for Ethics and Community

The Center for Ethics and Community seeks to strengthen ethics in schools, the community, universities, and all professions. Certificate programs are available to members of the CU-Denver community, as well as individuals outside the University. For more information, contact Candice L. Shelby at (303) 556-4803.

Center for NEW DIRECTIONS in Politics and Public Policy 

Center for NEW DIRECTIONS in Politics and Public Policy

The Center's programs are based on the notion that effectively addressing the public priorities of the 21st century requires that those working on matters of public interest possess a keen understanding of the political forces that guide or thwart the successful mobilization of resources and the achievement of constituent goals consistent with the public interest. Similarly, the need and opportunity for the active engagement, or leadership, of concerned citizens in the policy-making process is greater than ever before. Accordingly, students in any of the Center's academic programs will be representative of not only those working professionals in the public and non-profit sectors, but also elected officials; community activists; interest-gro​up stakeholders; educators from a wide range of demographic, occupational, and personal backgrounds; and simply concerned citizens.

Colorado Center for Public Humanities 

Colorado Center for Public Humanities

The work of the Center is oriented around two primary goals: First, as a think-tank, the Center investigates the public value of the humanities disciplines in relation to historical change by sponsoring programs that help to clarify the roles that humanities-based scholarship can play within the region, the nation, and the world more generally. Our second goal is to direct the engagements of humanities scholars toward extra-academic communities. In pursuing this objective, the Center supports scholars whose research programs are designed to reach civic groups outside the university walls and to benefit from the involvement of these groups.

Fourth World Center for the Study of Indigenous Law and Politics 

Fourth World Center for the Study of Indigenous Law and Politics

The Fourth World Center provides resources and services that focus on the legal and political issues faced by indigenous populations. The Center features a library, periodicals, audio and visual equipment, and newsfile archives on current development issues surrounding "the Fourth World," and will soon offer a certificate program in this area. For more information, contact Glenn T. Morris at (303) 556-2850.

Shared Analytical Services Laboratory 

Shared Analytical Services Laboratory

The Shared Analytical Services Laboratory fosters and promotes disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in the environmental sciences. Faculty represent disciplines within the college of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as civil engineering. Services provided by the Laboratory are available to all members of the University community, as well as to members of the public and private sectors through joint projects. For more information, contact Jeff Boon, Lab Manager, at (303) 556-4520.

The Writing Center 

The Writing Center

The UCD Writing Center is a free service available to all UCD students who wish to improve as writers.

You may work on assignments from any course or subject in the Writing Center. Consultants have a range of writing backgrounds and areas of expertise such as business, history, English, psychology and sociology.
