Upcoming Community Events
September 25, Discussion

The demand for quantifiable results is more important than ever. From foundations, to USAID, to individual donors, there is an expectation for  real-time data. We all claim to r egularly monitor and  rigorously evaluate our programs, but do  we  really?  This Technology Salon event will take place at the Posner Center in Denver.

You must RSVP for this event.
Looking for Travel Funding?
The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering will offer matching travel grants for students who are presenting at academic conferences. Learn more about various sources of conference-related travel  funds on our website .
Want to Volunteer?
After-school TEAMS Clubs (off-campus, 15-hour semester commitment)

Interested in teaching engineering to elementary or middle school students? Engineering student volunteers are needed to lead weekly after-school engineering clubs at schools in Longmont and Lafayette. You supply the enthusiasm, we'll supply the engineering activity! Leaders are needed 1 day a week (Mon-Thur.), starting October 5th (week of) through November 30th (week of). There is no club the week of Fall Break. If you have time in your schedule after 2 or 3pm, please volunteer! If you have a car and can drive a group of students, your mileage to/from the school will be reimbursed. If you don't have a car, don't worry, you'll be teamed with someone who does. Time counts for BOLD/TEAMS Participation Scholarship hours, or other service requirements.
