Events

CU Denver School of Public Affairs strives to be an educational resource by offering a number of timely and relevant events each year. Community members, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to learn more about current topics and participate in ongoing discussions involving the fields of public administration, local governance, environmental sustainability, education and criminal justice. Consider joining us as we host subject experts and take a deeper look into the issues and opportunities facing local, state and national leaders. If you have questions about any of our events, please contact us at spa.events@ucdenver.edu.

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. Those not already on our events mailing list can subscribe to receive updates and invitations to our events.

Virtual Event: How can we improve police and community relations?

| 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

Join the School of Public Affairs for an exclusive webinar:

How can we improve police and community relations?

No issue has more national attention right now than police and community relationships and related racial inequities, after the brutal killings of George Floyd and others by police officers. Massive protests and calls for police reform continue across the nation, even as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
As a School of Public Affairs with criminal justice faculty and undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs in criminal justice, we want to address these issues, hear your perspectives, and explore possible avenues for change.
 
Please join us for a virtual discussion on Tuesday, June 30, from 12 - 1:30 p.m. (MT), on Zoom. We will invite audience questions in advance when you register and via the Q&A  mechanism of Zoom.
