Published: Jan. 20, 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.
