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.

March First Friday with the School of Public Affairs-The Future of Higher Education for the CU System and CU Denver

| 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

The Future of Higher Education for the CU System and CU Denver

Long before COVID-19, higher education was undergoing transformation amid decreases in state funding, shifting student demographics, flexible curricula, questions about the value of degrees and other forces.  

The onset of the pandemic a year ago accelerated higher education’s transformation, with challenges (and opportunities) likely to endure beyond the pandemic. Both the University of Colorado System and CU Denver are engaged in strategic planning efforts, making this the perfect time to discuss future challenges and opportunities.

The School of Public Affairs is pleased to host a conversation with CU President Mark Kennedy and CU Denver Chancellor Michelle Marks – two nationally prominent leaders – about these issues.

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