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.

October First Friday with the School of Public Affairs: What are we voting on? A pre-election discussion of Colorado ballots, issues, and candidates

| 12:00 PM - 01:15 PM

What are we voting on? A pre-election discussion of Colorado ballots, issues, and candidates

Friday, October 2nd
12-1:00* PM, MST
**We will hold a 15-minute Q&A session at the conclusion of the hour-long discussion for those who wish to stay online with us.

The fall 2020 election will be critically important and unique in so many ways, especially given the current COVID-19 pandemic. The election will determine important races, from the U.S. President, to the U.S. Senate, to all of Congress. For Coloradans, most of the state legislature will be on the ballot, as well as at least 11 state amendments and propositions.

Join us for a virtual moderated discussion with a diverse panel of experts who will delve into these races and ballot measures. We’ll get to the heart of what Coloradans are most concerned about and how the issues are likely to influence their votes for major candidates. We’ll discuss the implications of selected ballot measures and their likelihood of being passed. We’ll also discuss levels of confidence in Colorado’s mail-in ballot process in light of the national dialogue around mail-in voting. The discussion will conclude with a Q&A segment.

Moderated by Dean and Distinguished Professor Paul Teske. Panelists announced soon.

This event will be recorded for those who are unable to attend.
