Colorado Water and Energy Research Center
Colorado's water and energy resources are inextricably linked.

Community Dialogues about “Opting Out” of State Assessments in Colorado
Through widespread “opt-out” efforts over the past several years, parent and student activists have pressured school districts, states, and the federal government to reconsider the extent and limits of state-mandated assessments.

Constitutional Literacy in Colorado High Schools
The national crisis in civics education has been widely recognized, as has the link between active citizen engagement and an understanding of the Constitution and the structure of government. High school students desperately need, but sometimes have limited access to, rich and engaging civics education. At the same time, law schools have recognized that students will learn the law better, and will be more engaged and prepared as lawyers, if they integrate experiential opportunities into their years in law school...

Critical Civic Inquiry
Critical Civic Inquiry (CCI) is based on the premise that students from historically marginalized groups will be most likely to engage in school when they see academic work as relevant to their everyday lives and they are invited to participate with adults in making their schools better. This approach builds on recent evidence showing developmental benefits when young people are treated as partners in school change rather than just targets of remediation (Kirshner & Ginwright, 2012; Ozer & Wright, 2012)...
