Professors Who Shape Policy and Solve Problems​

Our faculty do not live in an ivory tower. At the CU Denver School of Public Affairs, students work directly in the community with professors who are doing research and shaping public policy. They help find solutions to issues in Colorado and beyond. 

Denver is a thriving urban environment where our faculty and students are able to work on issues that affect the entire nation, such as education reform, fracking, legalized marijuana, urban sustainability and water policy. 

Please visit the faculty directory​ to learn about faculty members' research interests and to find their contact information.
