Civic Engagement Program
“At MSU Denver, our mission is to provide quality, affordable and relevant educational experiences for our students so we not only prepare and produce graduates who are ready to make contributions to our economy and work world, but civically-engaged community members who help solve societal issues.”
President Janine Davidson
The mission of the Civic Engagement Program is to offer educationally meaningful service opportunities that positively impacts the community and provides opportunities for students to develop as engaged citizens.
Make a commitment to action by developing a project that addresses a challenge on campus, our community, or around the world. Successful applicants will be matched with a mentor and are eligible to attend the Clinton Global Initiative University conference.
The Puksta Scholars Program provides students the opportunity to grow as leaders while addressing issues within the community. Puksta Scholars are provided money towards tuition as well as professional development and project support funds to create and sustain a community based project.
