Colorado Education Policy Cohort Applications Available

Written by: Children's Campaign
Date Posted: June 5, 2020

The goal of UCD’s School of Public Affairs Colorado Education Policy Cohort is to provide ten months of professional development for individuals who seek a stronger understanding of key education policy issues in Colorado. Participants will learn more about topics such as the legislative process, school finance, school accountability, and community engagement. They will also meet and network with leaders active in these important areas and operate out of the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado – Denver.

Participants usually come from a variety of organizations where they hold full-time positions (organizations usually also cover the cost of the program). Programming includes a 3.5-hour session once per month and a two-day, overnight visit to a rural part of the state to gain a better understanding of our 146 rural districts. For more information and for an application, please contact Peter Huidekoper at
