Update about our events due to the coronavirus

In response to an official announcement from CU Denver regarding changes to the campus events policy, the School of Public Affairs will be holding all of our events virtually, unless otherwise indicated, until we are permitted to resume our in-person programming. This affects events such as our First Friday Breakfast and Criminal Justice Series, as well as our co-hosted events.

The 2019-2020 Education Policy Networking Series opens December 2 with a discussion of the impact of disruption and trauma on families at the Mexico border. Children and families in Denver are highly impacted by the news from the border. Their trauma is compounded by the ICE raids to find and deport undocumented immigrants living here.

What is our role as educators in providing support and comfort to children and families? Can schools serve as a safe place for children in such a turbulent time? 

Discussion & Panelists:

  • Families at the border/families in Colorado: Framing the issues for the Latinx community

    Dr. Jorge Chavez, associate professor Human Development and Family Relations, CU Denver
  • The impact of disruption on families at the border

    Dr. Diane Estrada, associate professor Couples and Family Counseling, CU Denver

  • The impact of trauma on children 

    Dr. Franci Crepeau-Hobson, associate professor School Psychology, CU Denver
  • How can schools and teachers support children and families experiencing trauma?
