  • Empowering Disadvantaged Adolescents This project is a collaboration between the Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic (SLHC) in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) at CU-Boulder, and the Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST,) including administrators, educators, speech-language pathologists (SLP’s), and paraprofessionals, who made a request for the assessments, intervention and training that are explained below...
  • Empowering Families Through Museum Exhibits on Child Development Interest in the science of child development has increased dramatically in recent years. Research findings are relevant to families' lives, and address active debates with broad implications. For example, what are the consequences of societal changes in how much time children spend in supervised activities and in media activities? How do cognitive processes develop, and why do they predict important life outcomes? Can they be improved through intervention? Our goal is to share discoveries about child development with a diverse audience of thousands of individuals in the community, by collaborating with the Children's Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus to develop interactive mobile exhibits, facilitated by CU students, based upon research findings...

  • Energy Justice: Combating Poverty and Global Warming in Ayaviri Peru (Stage Two) A full one third of the world's population, typically living on less than a dollar or two per day, has no access to modern energy resources. The majority of these people rely on burning biomass (such as cow manure, crop residues, or collected wood) to meet all of their energy needs. Unfortunately, burning biomass for cooking, heating, and illumination creates indoor air pollution that results in 2 million premature deaths annually, primarily among women and children [WHO, UNDP, The Energy Access Situation in Developing Countries (2009)]...
  • Engaging Spanish-Speaking Coloradoans in the Fracking Debate The future of hydraulic fracturing (a.k.a. "fracking") is one of Colorado's most pressing issues, and yet the statewide conversation about oil and gas extraction has largely left out non-English-speakers. We aim to inspire a more inclusive democratic process by electronically publishing and distributing a Spanish language glossary of key terms used in the hydraulic fracturing debate...
  • Engineers Without Borders - Peru The Peru team has just finished a water system in the rural community of Llacamate. The system has been successful in bring water to many houses and the community has continued to add tap stands. Since the completion of that project the team has moved on to a larger community, Huacapongo. Huacapongo has a spring feed water distribution system that is not providing clean drinking water...
  • English Classes for Workplace and Career Development The number of immigrants in Colorado increased by 47% between 2000 and 2017, faster than the national average (1). While many immigrants come with solid English skills, there are still not enough English as a Second Language classes to meet the growing demand, especially in rural Colorado. The International English Center is seeking partners around the state to build English for Workplace Development classes that address English language learners’ specific language, cultural, and employment needs...
  • Enhancing Wildfire Outreach Programs with Social Science Risk assessments in hazard-prone communities are fairly common, however the results are often unknown to the residents, even when publicly available. In the wildfire arena, risk assessments are used primarily for hazardous fuels reduction, fire suppression strategy, and community planning. Providing residents with risk information at a relevant, actionable scale (parcel-level) and leveraging social data to engage residents in risk reduction constitutes a critical step in reducing risk, increasing resilience, and promoting fire adaptation and remains a central gap in current practices...
  • Entrepreneurial Law Clinic The Entrepreneurial Law Clinic (ELC) provides law students with unique, practical experience in transactional law while offering valuable legal services without charge to local businesses that lack access to venture capital or angel investor resources. The Clinic's clients include graduate students, professors, local entrepreneurs, and start-up companies...
  • Everyday Colorado: Generating Local Knowledge about Health & Environment Colorado is facing dramatic changes in industrial activities, environmental conditions, and land use development patterns. Extreme heat, together with severe drought conditions and extensive soil erosion, are creating conditions that could have dramatic health impacts. Colorado is also home to extensive energy development, resulting in questions about safety, health and environmental impact...
  • Experiencing the Three Legged Stool: Social, Economic and Environmental Education through the Mariposa Redevelopment This community outreach project is a continuation of the Mariposa redevelopment project made possible by the 2013-2104 outreach award.

  • Fire Adapted Bailey: Launching an Evidence-Based Approach As our nation grapples with increasingly devastating wildfires, national wildfire policy asserts the importance of local data in wildfire decision-making. According to the National Cohesive Strategy “There is no one-size-fits-all solution to reducing wildfire risk. Solutions must be tailored to landscapes and communities.” The work of this project is part of a larger project that uses a rigorous tool set and strong partnerships to understand the contexts and needs of individual communities and to apply this knowledge to improve programs and change local conversations...
  • Fossils in the Classroom The Fossils in the Classroom project provides hands-on teaching kits that include fossils and casts as well as classroom lessons that directly address the Colorado Department of Education's state Colorado Academic Standard on the study of fossils (Life Science 2.2).
