Faculty & Staff Opportunities

Through DU Grand Challenges (DUGC), CCESL provides workshops, grants, events, and other resources supporting faculty and staff who seek to use community-engaged methods in their work. Community-engaged methods support teaching, research/creative work, and service. 

Collective Impact Cohorts

Collective Impact Cohorts are comprised of community members, faculty, staff and students. Each group has two DU Faculty Leads and a facilitator trained in collective impact processes and approaches.

Workshops & Training

A Community Table is a conversation toolkit through which you can engage in structured, meaningful, solution-oriented conversations about the issues that matter most to you and your community. DU Grand Challenges (DUGC) provides the tools (sample invitations, conversation guides, facilitation training webinars, and more) that you need to host a conversation. You choose when, where, and with whom to have that conversation.


Faculty-Mentored Student Scholars

Faculty members can invite students they are mentoring to join the DUGC Student Scholar community to receive the same benefits as CCESL-mentored Student Scholars. Faculty are also eligible to receive a $200 stipend per mentee student.
