HOW TO GET HERE
The Symposium is going green! Handouts are available paperless with a QR code as well as on this site. Also, if you have your own name tag - bring it along.
The Auraria Campus (Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University, University of Colorado Denver, and the Auraria Higher Education Center) has currently suspended all Covid-19 protocols and requirements. The decision to pause the requirements was made in consultation with state and local public health officials. While the mask requirement is lifted, people on campus are urged to use common sense and courtesy on our campus, and to respect the choices of your colleagues, peers, and guests.
At the symposium, attendees are requested to be vaccinated and the room arrangement allows for social distancing. Individuals should feel comfortable wearing masks if they so choose.
