CU-Boulder Grants Awards To Various Outreach Programs

January 21, 1997

The Vice Chancellor’s 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-Boulder’s teaching and research mission. Outreach funds were provided by Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Philip DiStefano and the Division of Continuing Education.
