RIO week eventCU Engage and the Office of Outreach and Engagement invite you to attend an inspiring and informative session at this October's Research and Innovation Week, the Community-Engaged Scholarship Student Showcase. Several CU Engage graduate and undergraduate students, together with the Engaged Arts and Humanities scholars, will present their impactful public interest scholarship in a poster-style format. The interactive session takes place Wednesday October 16, from 10AM – 12pm at the Visual Arts Center (VAC) Lobby and Courtyard. Refreshments will be provided. Drop in as you're able.

The Student Showcase provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about the innovative ways CU Boulder graduate and undergraduate researchers are partnering with community members and organizations to tackle major public challenges and generate new knowledge together. Student projects include such collaborations as with the bilingual youth and families at Columbine Elementary, the Louisville Museum, the Boulder Fringe Festival, online story platforms and an intergenerational campus and community project to commemorate Los Seis de Boulder. For specific project details, see below.

Please RSVP here so we can provide the appropriate amount of refreshments.


The EAH Scholars and CBR Fellows applied the tools of their disciplines and their own unique experiences to the development of community-engaged partnership projects. Graduate students will share posters and materials from their projects. CU Engage Puksta Scholars, a cohort of undergraduate students who combine academic learning with multi-year community-engaged research projects, will also present their work.
