The Engage & Contribute Committee has two goals:
- To bring the CU student community together with the CU Alumni community. This committee was created for the main purpose of networking for student-alumni engagement, as well as student-to-student engagement. This committee plans events that help students develop networking skills, leadership skills and professional skills needed to make it in the “real world”. We also connect students with other student groups, organizations and sports on campus.
- To give back to the Boulder community as a whole. The Herd believes volunteering and community service are important aspects of the CU student community that teaches students valuable life experiences. The Herd aims to provide students with opportunities throughout the school year that engages students in giving back to the Boulder community, as well as connecting the CU student community with the greater Boulder community. The Herd has participated in Relay for Life and we have volunteered at the children’s hospital. This past March, The Herd hosted a St. Baldrick’s Day event and raised close to $30,000. Check out our events for the fall 2012 semester!
The fall 2012 events include:
Join The Herd at the Koenig Alumni Association for a free lunch for our Herd membersbetween 12 – 2 p.m. The first Wednesday of every month, starting in September. Check out the events page for more details!
