  • Cara’s (economics ’19) biggest focus right now is to better herself. The event that started it all was running half of Hainan Island in China with six male friends. No one had ever ran the intense route, which equaled roughly a marathon a day, for eight consecutive days. Cara learned discipline and determination in a whole new way while training. Throughout the entire process, she never told her parents until she was halfway through the route because she knew they wouldn’t have let their only girl go. Not only was it hard on her health, it was also a dangerous trek given there was no official path and she had to run in a field or on the highway at times. Most nights, the team was too exhausted to fall asleep, but no matter if it rained or was scorching hot, they kept going.

    Her next big moment was coming to the United States and studying at CU Denver as part of the joint education program between CU Denver and China Agricultural University. Visiting had been a dream of Cara’s for many years, but she had her reservations about relocating; she worried she would be treated differently and have a hard transition. However, that was not the case at all. She has really appreciated the experience and as a result, worked for both the Office of International Affairs and Business School to help students in similar positions as they transition from international countries. She’s even assisted students’ parents while applying for their visiting visas.

    During her time in the U.S., Cara has become even more brave and independent. She's enjoyed the opportunity of studying abroad, which has taught her how to balance studying, exercise, part-time jobs and socializing. Now that she’s completed her two years with CU Denver, she’s off to explore more cities and further advance her concentration in business analytics at Duke University.

    Cara aspires to leave an impact on China, opening unique businesses that fill current voids in the marketplace. While her family would prefer her to get a stable job and she might give them grey hairs, Cara can’t envision working for someone else long-term. Once she is established, Cara would love to help other young entrepreneurs just as she helped others while at CU Denver.

    When Cara looks back on all the risky things she has done so far, she gets excited about her future and feels like she can accomplish anything. #CUintheCity

  • It was previously thought the more cyclists on the road, the more likely drivers would slow down and be aware of their surroundings.

    Instead, researchers at the University of Colorado Denver and the University of New Mexico discovered that it’s not the cyclists, but the infrastructure built for them (bike lanes), that is making roads safer for everyone. #WorldBicycleDay 🚲

  • Graduates of the past: Gloria Tanner (MA ’76) grew up in the same segregated neighborhood in Atlanta as civil rights great Martin Luther King, Jr. She went to high school with MLK’s younger siblings and lived next door to Maynard Jackson, the first black mayor of a major southern city.

    Tanner reflects on how her master's degree at CU Denver gave her the opportunity to have input into public policy, ultimately becoming Colorado's first black woman senator. #CUDenverGrad

  • As a young child, Sandra (MBA ’19) was a migrant student in Texas, where her mother worked hard, long hours in a warehouse and her father worked in the fields of Mexico. This upbringing resulted in the only option that Sandra thought was available to her – dropping out of high school and entering into the workforce.

    The College Assistance Migrant Program worked with Sandra to realize education was an available path for her. While getting her undergrad degree in Human Development, she found her voice and became the president of Estudiantes Unidos, a student group which provides support to first-generation Hispanic students, got involved in La Raza, Compact Service Corps, The Bridge Project and many more educational outlets. She graduated as a C.A.M.P. alumni with the Nueve Esparanza scholarship and the prestigious Boettcher Legacy Opportunity Award.

    She then began her career as a STEM coordinator where she serves at-promise students living in Denver’s Public Housing. Right away, Sandra grew a deep appreciation for STEM education and what it can do for future generations. A dedicated teacher, Sandra began to put herself through computer science and engineering courses to make up for the gaps in her education.

    This ignited a fire in Sandra to make STEM education more accessible to diverse groups. Since then, she has helped facilitate yearly STEM events such as Colorado’s Scratch Day, Girls Science Day, STEAM-A-Palooza and Destination Imagination. She has participated in the launch of Girls Inc.’s Eureka program, a program that exposes and engages at-promise middle school girls in STEM fields.

    Education once a foreign space for Sandra, she now teaches 650+ students STEM courses at Belleview Elementary and is pursuing her masters in curriculum and instruction to further enhance her skills and better serve her students. Sandra is proud that her daughter, who is now 10, aspires to be an engineer herself thanks to the excitement her mom has created around STEM. #CUintheCity #CUDenverGrad

  • Abby (criminal justice, ’19) always valued getting an education because she knew it would someday allow her to support her mother and take care of her community. When Abby was in 9th grade, her only ride to school fell through, but instead of dropping out, she started taking online classes. The next time she reunited with her high school class was at graduation, where she was asked to give a speech on account of her stellar GPA.

    Abby had high hopes coming to CU Denver because she previously excelled at school, but the transition was not what she anticipated. She struggled to find a regular schedule that worked for her – she wasn’t used to being surrounded by so many people all the time. Abby routinely found herself going to the offices of TRiO and Educational Opportunity Programs, disclosing to them she was going to drop out. She began to worry that school must not be right for her after all. But the offices knew how much a college degree and career plans mattered to Abby, so they worked with her to lighten her in-person class schedule. Eventually, Abby became a fully online student. After going back to an online-only format, she was back to taking five classes each semester, and has been back on the Dean’s List ever since.

    During her time at CU Denver, her flexible online schedule has allowed Abby to work 25 hours per week at the College of Arts & Media. This was a blessing for Abby, who has been financially independent for some time. She’s made such a connection with CAM that they’ve arranged for her to work there after she graduates until she secures a job in her field.

    Her dream job? A police officer. Always wanting to have a hands-on role in helping her community, Abby realized she could help families through her work in the criminal justice field. When asked why she wants to confront potentially dangerous situations, she says, “Somebody has to do it, and I’d be honored to.” She plans to patrol the streets for a few years and then apply to be a detective. All she has to do is pass the physical exam, which includes scaling a 6 ft fence and dragging a 150+ lb dummy for 20 ft (no big deal). In the meantime, she’s getting familiar with local police agencies and helping to translate their Facebook pages to Spanish.

    Abby thinks back to how her mom ­­– who never finished elementary school in Mexico – would say to her, “You see the struggles I go through without an education? I want better for you.” Abby can’t imagine where she would be if she hadn’t continued to pursue her degree. She thanks all of the CU Denver individuals who helped her succeed. Watch for Abby walking across the Commencement stage this Saturday! #CUDenverGrad #CUintheCity
