Frequently Asked Questions about Adding Your Program

The Public Outreach and Community Engagement website is the only campus-wide online resource focused exclusively on CU Boulder outreach and engagement activities and programs. This site allows campus and community members to browse and search for current programs of interest, obtain contact information for each program and potentially collaborate or participate.
