Make a Lasting Impact


Our research and community and global partnerships give students and faculty the chance to have positive, lasting impacts around the world.

Community Partnerships

AHSS faculty, students and alumni are integrated throughout Denver and international communities. Over the years, we've partnered with hundreds of businesses, organizations and nonprofits to make a difference in our global community.

Are you an AHSS employee, student or alum looking for an internship, job or volunteer opportunity? Or do you just want to learn more about a particular organization and DU's ties to it?

(Psst ... Students: check with your major advisor about internship opportunities. Many departments have structured internship programs that can help you land an internship!)

Here is a list of some of the organizations AHSS professors and staff are connected with. Feel free to contact the AHSS professor associated with the organization you're interested in.
