Colorado Charge


The Colorado Charge is an opportunity for students to experience how their research may benefit the city of Denver and state of Colorado as they conduct work in service to a social issue; it is also an opportunity for students to showcase their research abilities to community leaders. Students are "charged" with assuming the role of researcher/expert/advisor as they conduct research pertinent to a pressing social issue in our city and state and share their work with community leaders in hopes of crafting greater understanding around this issue.
