• Community Engaged Teaching

  • This article profiles a grant-funded social science research methods course that I taught in Winter 2017. This course included a research partnership with the Second Chance Center, Colorado's largest community reintegration program run by and for formerly incarcerated individuals. Many thanks to the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning (CCESL) for supporting this work. 

    In Winter-Spring 2018, I participated in a grant-funded pilot project entitled Pathways to the Public Good project. Through this project I mentored three former students as they created e-portfolios defining each student's 'public identity' through a collection of artifacts and reflections. The university awarded three of the 21 participating students with Distinguished Public Goods Scholar awards and two of my amazing students won! Congratulations Cristin Espinoza and Andi Schlut

    Congratulations are also due to my Capstone student, Danielle Trujillo... For more about her published paper and the Democratic Erosion Capstone Seminar, please see here.
