Here at the Center for Public Deliberation, we focus our energy and expertise on elevating the conversation, not winning the argument. Since 2006, we have partnered with local governments and organizations throughout Northern Colorado to do just that.

For Community's Sake

The CSU Center for Public Deliberation is dedicated to enhancing local democracy through improved public communication and community problem-solving.

Our aim is to improve the way our community is able to talk through complex issues so that we can arrive at better decisions. Deliberation requires open spaces for citizens to come together, good and fair information to help structure the conversation, and skilled facilitators to guide the process. The CPD is dedicated to providing these three key ingredients to Northern Colorado.
