What is the Data to Policy Project?
The Data to Policy Project (D2P) is an initiative to engage students with their community’s needs through course-based assignments, which culminate into data-driven policy proposals to local governments and agencies. D2P participants will explore issues in Denver Policing and Affordable Housing that need improvement, then develop evidence-based policies to address the identified problems. Teams present their proposals in the form of a research poster at the D2P Symposium. Participants will be required to communicate their ideas to a general audience in a compelling way, while judges evaluate proposals and award prizes. Local lawmakers, administrators, law enforcement officers, and housing officials who could potentially support the proposals will be attending the symposium to listen to the team presentations.
