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.

Election Assessment: Results, Analysis, and Redistricting for Future Elections

While the 2021 November election does not feature major national races, we are voting on several Colorado state and local races and ballot initiatives. With the 2020 Census data available, Colorado is using its independent redistricting process for the first time to guide future elections. In addition, we are in the midst of a national controversy about elections and how best to count ballots accurately and securely.

Join our panel of experts, including two Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissioners who have worked on the redistricting process, for a discussion on some of the most important issues of our time and democracy.

This webinar will be recorded for those unable to attend.

JulieMarie Shepherd Macklin, PhD
Academic Director, CU Boulder Presidents Leadership Class
Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissioner, U.S. Congress

Amber McReynolds
Founding CEO, National Vote at Home Institute
