Student Support Programs
The Denver Scholarship Foundation wants every college student to successfully complete a college degree or certificate. Below are some helpful resources and programs that are available at CSU.
- Colorado Challenge – Colorado Challenge College Counselors work with students throughout their college career, focusing on assisting students in discerning pathways to graduation, navigating the academic world, developing soft skills (e.g. time management and finances), adjusting to the emotional and social challenges of postsecondary education, and the many additional concerns students encounter.
- TRIO Student Support Services/Academic Advancement Center (AAC) – students eligible for AAC each year are from low income and/or first generation backgrounds or are students with disabilities. Institutional data shows that in comparison to the entire CSU population, first generation and lower income students have lower rates of retention and graduation, lower GPA’s and take fewer credits per semester.
- Key Communities – The Key Communities are highly diverse first and second year learning communities designed to assist students with their transition to and through the university. Based on active and experiential learning through interdisciplinary classes, service-learning, academic and career exploration, undergraduate research and leadership development, Key aims to increase retention and academic performance of participants, encourage campus and community involvement, and promote diversity awareness.
- President’s Leadership Program – a three year, fourteen credit leadership development experience for undergraduate students. In addition to traditional classroom learning, students participate in retreats, service projects, and internships that allow them to apply their knowledge and training.
- College of Natural Sciences Learning Community – a residential learning community for students with majors in the College of Natural Sciences. Provides academic support to our members by facilitating activities designed with a current understanding of how learning works.
