An excursion to the beach, a ski trip to the mountains, and a stay at the luxurious Grand Hyatt in Santiago. Claire Ransom enjoyed several occasions of fun and relaxation this summer, but mostly she traveled to Chile to work. And work she did – eight hours a day, five days a week. Ransom was among the inaugural cohort of thirteen CU Denver students participating in the Internship Programs Abroad (IPA), a new global education program sponsored by CU Denver. She applied her knowledge of Spanish and sustainability while serving as the first-ever intern for Gecamin, a company that holds multinational conferences and seminars on sustainable mining practices.

Growing up in Montrose, Colorado, recent CU Denver graduate Beatrice Guillermo did not have the opportunity to meet Hispanic women who had fulfilled her dream of going to medical school. Her family and upbringing had given her many keys to success (including bilingual fluency in Spanish and English) but she hadn't seen the path to success traversed by many people who shared her background. That's why she helped launch the Colorado Organization for the Advancement of Diverse Scholars in Science (COADSS) program this year.
