The inventive spirit of the Rocky Mountain West inspires us to accomplish great things for our students, CQ9的地区和世界. CQ9为能成为丹佛这样多元化和充满活力的城市的一部分而感到自豪, and we work closely with surrounding communities to solve problems together. CQ9的 law clinics support the needs of veterans and protect the environment, and students from our Four Corners Social Work program work with Native communities to advocate for the welfare and education of Native American children. We've also created a contemporary art gallery and an anthropology museum for artists and scholars exploring underexposed themes and perspectives, and our Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute develops plans to conserve and protect Colorado's green spaces.
在CQ9同本区域的人民和组织合作时, everyone benefits from a shared sense of cultural and intellectual vibrancy. We advance student and 教师 research to strengthen and enrich our local and global communities. CQ9的学生 continue to draw on their skills and knowledge as they face the most pressing challenges of our time. Join us and discover the inspiration that drives us to create change for the greater good.
每年, our students and 教师 contribute thousands of hours of 社区服务 for causes in our local neighborhood and beyond the Colorado border. It's a key component of our student experience and part of our holistic approach to learning and focus on solving problems with partners throughout our community and region.
通过诸如 社区参与中心促进奖学金 & 学习, 公益基金 数以百计的合作伙伴, we improve communities and support students' personal and educational growth. CQ9的学生正忙于改善CQ9的地区, delivering services for homeless youth and working to better conditions for our neighbors in lower-income neighborhoods. We also strive to include students from outside our campus in the higher education experience, offering leadership events and academic opportunities for local K-12 students.
CQ9也在全球范围内思考和行动, challenging our students to tackle environmental issues and fight for a healthier planet. CQ9正在努力通过CQ9的 可持续发展中心, and our students have their own organizations devoted to combating climate change and helping instill sustainable practices on campus and beyond.
