The Southwest Colorado Education Collaborative is working together with five school districts and two higher education partners to share a broader pool of resources, build partnerships with local industry leaders, and design easily accessible, interesting ways for rural students to engage in relevant career and college pathways.
The Colorado Lab’s mission is improving the lives of Colorado residents by partnering with state and local governments to strengthen coordinated and efficient person-centered services.
We believe that smart, strategic partnerships with government have the potential to improve people’s lives.
State and Local Government
So we listen to our state and local government partners to understand the most pressing challenges they face.
Then, we activate the research community to work with those partners to generate insights.
Together, we take a 360-degree view of problems, focusing on the needs of the whole person.
When we do this, we create powerful partnerships that drive change, improving the lives of Colorado residents.
