Improving Daily Living

The first issue area explored by DU's Grand Challenges project aims to identify and address the interconnected challenges that affect daily living in our communities. Through intentional community-university collaboration​, we seek to meet our communities’ basic needs and confront issues like violence, environmental sustainability and health and wellness. 

As part of the initiative, we've awarded grants to test an array of project ideas, from providing technology access for low-income residents, to teaching young people empathy and financial skills, to creating inter-generational social connections.
