AHEC Strategic Plan feedback sessions

AHEC recently completed a draft of a Strategic Plan that sets the tone for a stronger, inclusive, and more collaborative shared campus that elevates services and the vision for the Auraria Campus as a whole. To preview this plan and share important feedback that will help shape this campus and community, please plan to attend one of the following sessions:

UndocuPeers training

Roadrunners are invited to attend a six-hour professional-development training to raise awareness about the realities and challenges faced by undocumented students and the resources available to them. The material is based on a workshop developed by undocumented students and the advocacy group United We Dream. Masks will be required for this in-person training, and capacity is limited to 40 participants, so be sure to reserve your spot today.
