The Institute for Ethical and Civic Engagement was created specifically to nurture and encourage ethical and civic education at CU-Boulder. The institute serves as a forum, catalyst, coordinator and, especially, a forceful proponent for faculty members, students, administrators, and community leaders who wish to encourage ethical and civic engagement at CU-Boulder so we can effectively integrate these dimensions of education into our curriculum, co-curricular programs, and campus culture.
As part of this effort, we assist colleges, schools, departments, and student organizations to develop model projects, certificate programs, capstone projects, and courses in this area. And we serve as a catalyst for creative thinking, bringing local, national and international leaders to campus and hosting conferences, workshops, and seminars for the exchange of ideas.
