This program convenes and supports a group of faculty members who are committed to realizing collaborative efforts that build Colorado’s social/civic fabric and elevate outreach and engagement activities that fulfill CU Boulder’s democratic mission. 

Faculty Fellows are subject matter experts, thought partners and point people in their schools/colleges on matters related to the civic health of Colorado communities. They work with Office for Outreach and Engagement staff and community members to plan and execute campus and community-based work that connects their disciplines and the university broadly with efforts to ameliorate the effects of political polarization and restore civic trust. They build relationships, participate in events (e.g., lectures, trainings), and/or undertake public or community-engaged research activities with partner organizations.
