Colorado Governors Fellowship Program welcomes 32 new civic and business leaders

CU Denver School of Public Affairs (SPA) has been mentioned in the article “Hickenlooper names 32 civic and business leaders as Governor’s Fellows.” For two years, SPA has been the academic partner to the Colorado Governors Fellowship Program, whose aims are to:

  • Increase engagement among private, nonprofit and public sectors
  • Promote opportunities to make a difference within public service
  • Develop Colorado’s public service talent

Colorado Governors Fellows are private and nonprofit sector executives who seek engagement in public service and tools to make a difference by applying their skills and experiences across sectors. The third year of the program will start in September 2018. Fellows will graduate with new knowledge, relationships and influence within the public sector, and an alumni network of highly influential civic leaders who can make tangible impacts on the future of our state as highly-engaged executives, future senior-level government leaders or Governor-appointed committee members.

Dean Teske has given several presentations to this group, in its first two years, about state politics, economics and budgets. Other SPA faculty who have presented include Danielle Varda, Tanya Heikkila, Chris Weible, Mark Safty, Randy Harrison and Jamie VanLeeuwen.
