Centers & Institutes

Facilitating International Research

The Korbel School is home to a number of research centers and institutes where students, faculty, practitioners and experts work collaboratively on some of the most pressing issues facing our world. With a diverse portfolio of internal and external funding, research teams at the Korbel School are actively engaged in everything from bilateral country forecasting to global peace and security. Research at the Korbel School is featured in some of the most prestigious international journals, manuscripts and media outlets, as well as referenced by policy leaders and activists around the world.

Our centers and institutes are a critical element of our mission to promote learning by empowering students to advance scholarly inquiry, cultivate critical and creative thought and generate knowledge for all. Our active partnerships with organizations and institutions throughout our local and global communities allow us to take coursework out of the classroom and put it into action. Because we're committed to integrating teaching, research and practical problem solving, we offer several ways for students to participate in engaging research projects.

Initiatives

We're working to improve the future of Africa. Our Students for Africa are actively building a dynamic structure that connects faculty and students to organizations, in Denver and beyond, that support Africa's growth and development.

An African Issues Concentration is now available for graduate students. The relationships among African Initiatives and its partners are ever-evolving as substantive opportunities for students to mesh their studies with community work. Internships, volunteer opportunities and research projects are presented through the African Initiatives website, Korbel's Office of Career and Professional Development, a physical display, listserv outlets and the African Initiatives Facebook page.
