Gatlin chosen as interim director for Chancellor’s Leadership Class


Garrett Gatlin – a UCCS lecturer, research intern at the Center for Creative Leadership, and assistant director of a local nonprofit – has been named the interim director of the Chancellor’s Leadership Class. Gatlin will lead the student scholarship and leadership development program for the 2014-15 academic year.

Since January, Gatlin has worked as a research, design and delivery intern for the Center for Creative Leadership. He has also worked as the coordinator for communication across the curriculum in the Center for Excellence for Communication and as an academic lecturer. He is an assistant director of operations for Pure Rebellion Ministries, a local nonprofit, and previously worked as both a marketing manager for an insurance company and as a restaurant trainer.

Gatlin earned a bachelor’s degree in communication from UCCS in 2012 and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in communication.

CLC is a scholarship program designed to improve leadership skills, personal effectiveness and to prepare students to make meaningful community contributions.

Gatlin replaces Kristi Kremers, director of the program since 2012, who recently announced plans to return to the University of Minnesota where she hopes to complete her doctoral degree dissertation.
