Five members of the University of Colorado community are recipients of the 2014 Thomas Jefferson Award, among the highest honors given at CU. The Jefferson Award recognizes CU faculty, staff and students who demonstrate excellence in the performance of regular academic responsibilities while contributing outstanding service to the broader community. Peter Simons, director of the Institute for Ethical and Civic Engagement (IECE) at CU-Boulder, was named as this year's staff recipient.
When it comes to social responsibility, Emily Booth is getting down to business.
Booth will graduate with distinction this May with concurrent bachelor's and master’s degrees in accounting and a certificate in Socially Responsible Enterprise from the Leeds School of Business at CU-Boulder.
Two things set the University of Colorado Boulder's Public Achievement program apart from other service learning and civic engagement initiatives: mentorship and empowerment.
