Hometown Colorado is a collaboration between CityCenter and city partners interested in engaging students and faculty on a project in their community, Hometown Colorado connects communities in Colorado with the wide-ranging knowledge and academic discipline of students and faculty experts to address local issues that advance community liveability and quality of life.
Hometown Colorado leaves a lasting impact on the communities it partners with.
Together with our city partner, scopes of work for each project are developed. Typically, the scope includes a detailed problem statement, potential directions for student exploration, expected outcomes, deliverables and activities. Partners are asked to invest $10,000 in each course, which covers: coordination support from the Hometown Colorado staff and, depending on the scope of work developed, can include: student and faculty site visits to the partner city; compilation, printing and distribution of high-quality final reports; hosting of events and student-created materials for display.
