Center for Urban Education
The Center for Urban Education (CUE) works collaboratively with MSU Denver’s Department of Admissions and Outreach and with initiatives and programs across the campus that are focused on serving urban students and their families. MSU Denver faculty design and teach classes in our after-school and 9th grade summer camp programs, and MSU Denver students serve as paid tutors, mentors and teaching assistants.
CUE has benefited from the support of affiliate/tenure faculty from the following MSU Denver programs and departments: Anthropology, Center for Visual Arts, Computer Science, Chicana/o Studies, Criminal Justice, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Economics, Education, Engineering Technology, English, Learning Communities and First-Year Success, Mathematics, Nursing, Nutrition, Philosophy, Psychology and Theatre.
CUE also works to leverage resources through partnerships with complementary MSU Denver initiatives:
