Each year, the DU Grand Challenges Forum series highlight topics related to the interconnected issues of Improving Daily Living, Increasing Economic Opportunity and Advancing Deliberation and Action for the Public Good.

In the Forum series, campus and community experts share bold and inspiring ‘lightning’ talks that spark discussion among attendees on how the topic impacts our communities. These discussions provide fuel for identifying bold actions that move the needle forward in addressing complex issues that affect our communities.
