The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has been selected as the Denver Public Schools CareerConnect Higher Ed Partner of the Year. Christian Valtierra received the award on behalf of CU Anschutz during a Partnership Recognition Breakfast earlier this month.

Valtierra, assistant director of the Office of Inclusion and Outreach, and Neil Krauss, from the campus’s Chancellor’s Office, have organized a number of campus visits where Denver Public School students participated in hands-on activities. Additionally, the campus provided mentorship for students and will provide two students with summer internships at the campus.
