About

Community and Civic Engagement (CCE) is about bringing students and organizations together to make a positive, significant, and lasting difference in the world. Through volunteering, voting, internships, and community organizing students can learn beyond the classroom and campus.

Community engagement offers a way for students to participate in programs and organizations on and off campus as a member of their community. Civic engagement occurs when individuals work to make a change on a local, state, national, and international level through political and non-political actions. The goal of community and civic engagement is to address public concerns and uplift communities.

MSU Denver provides a connection for students, faculty, staff, and community partners to access resources, events, and networks to participate in the communities on and off campus.

MSU Denver Athletes Named Finalists for the NCAA 2021 Division II Award of Excellence

Student-athletes from MSU Denver were named finalists for the NCAA 2021 Division II Award of Excellence. Chosen from schools in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, MSU Denver athletes were recognized for their Food for Thought work. Student-athletes from all MSU Denver teams have participated in Food for Thought activities, an organization dedicated to eliminating weekend hunger for children in the area. Student-athletes packed PowerSacks, which include enough to feed a family of four two meals. Food for Thought served 53 elementary schools and more than 10,000 children.

Twenty-eight schools were named finalists for the accolade which recognizes initiatives in the past year that exemplify the Division II philosophy, community engagement and student-athlete leadership. Division II honors its members each year for conducting events that promote student-athletes giving back and serving as leaders within their communities or on their campuses.
