Community-Engaged Scholarship

Scholar Shop

What is the community spotlight series?

The aim of the Community Spotlight Series is to connect DU students and faculty with Denver-based community partners to pursue collaborative projects. Projects may include community-engaged scholarship/research or short-and long-term service learning opportunities. At Community Spotlight events, community partner representatives share information on current initiatives and actively brainstorm in dialogue with DU attendees about opportunities for partnership.
