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.

November First Friday: What happened in our elections?

| 12:00 PM - 01:15 PM

What happened in our elections? 

The November 2020 election is poised to be one of the most interesting—and challenging—in our history, taking place amidst a deadly pandemic, with many voters opting for mail-in ballots rather than in-person voting. Additionally, the country is mired in an extremely divisive national context, with fewer undecided voters than usual.

The unprecedented spike in mail-in ballots may cause problems and will likely delay the announcement of the official election results for days, and we hope to have the results in time for our First Fridays event. To understand and make better sense of the elections, please join our expert and balanced panel as we discuss and dissect these issues.

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