Get Involved

As a university-wide initiative powered by CCESL, DU Grand Challenges (DUGC) supports community-engaged work that builds toward our vision of a world in which all communities thrive. The most urgent and persistent problems challenging our communities cannot be solved alone. Through DUGC, CCESL offers multiple opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to build towards this vision.
