Community Engagement @ DU: A Strategic Vision for CCESL

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.
