Partnership with University's Learning Center
The Village has developed a unique collaboration with the University of Colorado Denver’s Experiential Learning Center. This is an exciting win-win relationship. The Village becomes host to an undergraduate or graduate school student for one semester, who is assigned a preceptor and participates in an immersion experience – learning about how a senior living community operates, meeting with staff, and being assigned a Village resident for the duration of their internship.
Additionally, each intern is assigned a special project during their stay that supports operations. At the end of the semester the intern presents their experience and special project findings to our staff and residents.
