St. Cajetan’s Church
Auraria Campus
Denver, Colorado

This two-day interactive symposium will confront the University of Colorado Denver’s histories of displacement and removal of Indigenous and Hispanic/Latinx communities, and find ways to move forward in educational, meaningful, transformative, and productive ways. The symposium will support on‐going efforts to construct long‐lasting mechanisms to capture and memorialize the forced relocations of communities of color that allowed for the existence of the Auraria Campus. The hope is that such efforts will ensure the continued sharing of Denver, Auraria, and campus history and promote broader understanding of the impact of displacement and gentrification. Our intention is that the symposium will inform the creation of a more inclusive campus that acknowledges its past and is mindful of its connection with current communities, many of which engage directly with CU Denver.
