Interested in Collaborating with DU on Research/Creative Works?

The Scholar Shop connects community organizations with students and faculty to address public problems through research and/or creative work. The goal of the project is to integrate the research needs of community organizations with the expertise and academic goals of students and their faculty mentors in order to benefit our shared community. Visit our Scholar Shop page to learn more and complete an interest form to submit project ideas.

Interested in Getting Involved with DU Grand Challenges?

In the DU Grand Challenges Forum series, leaders in scholarship and practice give lightening talks to provide a spark for small-group discussion among participants on how the topic impacts our communities.

Additionally, check out A Community Table (ACT). ACT is a one-day event designed to bring DU alumni, faculty, staff, students and community members together over a meal to identify shared aspirations for improving daily life.
