The University of Denver’s graduate and professional schools have profound influence on the metro Denver area and beyond. The University has a decades-long legacy of offering clinics to members of the community, partnering with local organizations for internships and community-based coursework, and engaging students in the community in ways that enhance their classroom learning.

As Denver experiences explosive growth in combination with the increasing need for mental and behavioral health expertise, the University’s Schools of Education, Social Work and Professional Psychology decided to collaborate in new and interdisciplinary ways. The deans of each school will discuss the opportunities and challenges that such substantial community engagement presents—from structural and capacity issues to data tracking and outcome measurement to quality control.
