The Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Institute for Public Service hosted a series of candidate forums to address student concerns, including water use, immigration, affordable housing and mental health. Moderators from local media outlets asked the questions collected from focus groups held earlier this year, made up of working adult students from MSU Denver.

The panel videos were recorded and produced by students in MSU Denver’s Department of Journalism and Media Production.
