CCESL's Strategic Plan provides a framework to achieve our vision to lead the campus in embracing the University of Denver’s commitment to “being a great private university dedicated to the public good.”
Grounded in on our Strategic Plan, CCESL organizes programs into four primary initiatives (Community-Engaged Learning, Community-Engaged Scholarship, Civic Development, and Service), the outcomes of which directly contribute to DU's mission and goals.
Through quarterly Public Good Newsletters as well as End of Year Reports (accessible below), CCESL reports regularly on progress towards our strategic goals.
Strategic Goal 1: Advance Community-Engaged Scholarship and Creative Work

Strategic Goal 3: Champion the Civic Mission of Higher Education as a Means to 21st Century Careers and Communities
Strategic Goal 4: Engage DU in Service with Communities
Strategic Goal 5: Develop Distinction in Community-Engaged Pedagogy, Scholarship, and Practice
