CU-Boulder to Lead Five-year, $6.5 Million Effort to Reduce Youth Violence in Denver's Montbello Neighborhood

The effort will be led by CU-Boulder's Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence, which CDC also named a National Academic Center for Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention. In prior years only 10 other schools in the nation have received the designation, including Harvard University, the University of Chicago and the University of California, Berkeley.
