MSU Denver Community Engagement


MSU Denver has always been of the city, not just in the city. Since early on, we have been “an urban college… not just to teach city people, but to teach people for the benefit of the city.” (President Ken Phillips, 1969). Our strategic plan goals reflect our diverse engagement in and commitment to the community.

Theme I, Goal 3:

MSU Denver graduates are civic-minded and ready to meet career and/or graduate school expectations.


Theme II Community Engagement and Regional Scholarship:

As Colorado’s urban university, we will transform metropolitan Denver’s urban communities.


Theme II, Goal 1:

MSU Denver is sought after by Colorado’s public, private and nonprofit sectors as a partner in addressing and solving community problems.


Going forward MSU Denver will apply for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification.

This elective classification is a tangible way to document our commitment to our mission to engage “the community at large in scholarly inquiry, creative activity and the application of knowledge.”
