Opportunities for Faculty & Staff

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.

CCESL provides workshops, grants, events, consultation and other resources supporting faculty and staff who seek to use community-engaged methods in their work. Community-engaged methods support teaching, research/creative work, and service. Community-engaged projects focus on strengths and assets, build power, and rely upon a sharing of resources for mutual benefit.


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.
