The Vice Chancellors Awards and Grants Advising Committee at the University of Colorado at Boulder has awarded grants to support outreach projects by 22 CU-Boulder employees for 1997-98.
Outreach programs extend the resources of the university and serve various educational, social, economic and cultural needs of communities throughout Colorado.
Last April, the Council of Deans approved a plan to strengthen campus outreach initiatives and to integrate outreach more fully with CU-Boulders teaching and research mission. Outreach funds were provided by Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Philip DiStefano and the Division of Continuing Education.
