Opportunities for Faculty & Staff

Community-engaged methods support teaching, research/creative work, and service. At CCESL, we believe in the power of partnerships developed between DU and the community that are forged from mutual trust, respect, and commitment to create positive change. Community-engaged projects focus on strengths and assets, build power, and rely upon a sharing of resources for mutual benefit and provide students practical experiences in tackling some of today’s critical challenges as they learn key collaboration skills. 


From fireside chats to faculty-led lunchtime learning sessions, CCESL events provide faculty and staff with opportunities to deepen their community-engaged practice and connect with others at DU, in the community, and beyond.
