On Wednesday, Feb 20, five staff and two faculty spent the afternoon at Food Bank of the Rockies as part of the university’s CU in the Community program. Through CU in the Community, all faculty and staff are allowed one half-day of work time (four hours) to go into the community and participate in a volunteer activity of their choice. The team from the college helped clean and sort donated groceries.
Participants included Kathryn Brocko, Dana Carpenter, Maryam Darbeheshti, Erica Lefeave, Petrina Morgan, Roxanne Pizano and Heidi Utt. “I love having the opportunity to do this every year, and I can’t wait to see what the college does next year,” said Heidi.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
