Center for Public Deliberation
Dedicated to enhancing local democracy through improved public communication and community problem solving, CSU`s Center for Public Deliberation (CPD) serves as an impartial resource for the northern Colorado community. Deliberation requires safe places for citizens to come together, good and fair information to help structure the conversation, and skilled facilitators to guide the process. CSU students are trained to serve as facilitators and process experts, as well as complete the primary work of the Center. This fund supports activities, programs, and projects of the CPD in the Communication Studies Department.
