Each year the University of Denver convenes a non-partisan panel of citizens to examine an issue of particular importance to the people of Colorado. These panels, called Strategic Issues Panels, are "blue ribbon panels" in every sense of the word.
Typically, they are composed of 15-20 accomplished citizens from various walks of life, selected on the basis of their personal experience, judgment, and openness to a variety of ideas and perspectives. Panel members bring a wealth of experience to the process.
