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.

February First Friday with the School of Public Affairs-Colorado's COVID-19 Vaccination: Hesitancy, Ethics, and Logistics

| 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

 Colorado’s COVID-19 Vaccination: Hesitancy, Ethics, and Logistics

Virtual panel discussion with Q&A

Now that there are COVID-19 vaccines available and more in the research pipeline, our attention turns to how to get the vaccine into people. In this panel, we'll explore some of the challenges of offering vaccination to the entire population of Colorado. We'll discuss how vaccine hesitancy and skepticism impacts uptake, the ethical considerations of vaccine distribution, and the logistics of getting two shots in every arm across our mountainous and rural geography. 

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