Events

CU Denver School of Public Affairs strives to be an educational resource by offering a number of timely and relevant events each year. Community members, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to learn more about current topics and participate in ongoing discussions involving the fields of public administration, local governance, environmental sustainability, education and criminal justice. Consider joining us as we host subject experts and take a deeper look into the issues and opportunities facing local, state and national leaders. If you have questions about any of our events, please contact us at spa.events@ucdenver.edu.

International Denver

As our city (and state) continues to grow, we are becoming a bigger player on the international scene. With the upcoming development of the new World Trade Center facility, this transition will become even more visible. An exciting and vibrant international hub due to open in the RiNo Art District in 2020, The World Trade Center will be a headquarters for international trade and related activities.

Despite these exciting local developments, our national politics around trade and international relations have become more complicated. What is Denver’s standing in the international trade arena? How will the WTC move us forward? How does our airport factor in to future internationalization? What barriers do we face to becoming a truly international city?

Please join our panelists as they address these questions in an engaging discussion. Breakfast will be provided.

Panelists:

Stephanie Garnica, Director, Global Business Development, Denver Economic Development & Opportunity

Karen Gerwitz, President & CEO, World Trade Center Denver

Rosaura (Rosy) McDonough, Director, Minority Business Office, Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade

Moderator:

Robyn Mobbs, Senior Instructor, CU Denver School of Public Affairs
