Alumnus Jamie Van Leeuwen Named One of Colorado’s Most Powerful People

Ph.D. alumnus Jamie Van Leeuwen was named one of Colorado’s 25 most powerful people by ColoradoBiz magazine in its May/June 2017 edition. “Van Leeuwen, who completed his Ph.D. in public policy at the Graduate School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver, says the key to success in both jobs is to empower others. “To influence and impact change you turn that control over to the communities you work with,” he says. “To truly be effective, you need to listen and think before you act. How do you create jobs so people can take care of their families? That’s what people really want. They want to feel empowered.”

Congratulations Jamie!
