Metropolitan State University of Denver
Metro State’s community impact demonstrated through digital exhibit
It’s a fact. The Center for Nonprofit Organization Administration at Metropolitan State College of Denver has prepared more than 1,000 students to run nonprofit organizations.
It’s one of many examples of how the urban College has served as a community resource and economic engine in the state, in addition to providing access to strong higher-educational programs.
Inspired by Metro State’s yearlong 45th anniversary celebration, the Office of College Communications has launched a digital exhibit, “45 Degrees of Impact,” to showcase some of the College’s renowned and little-known contributions.
“Metro State’s influence is obvious in the classroom,” says Cathy Lucas, associate vice president of communications and advancement. “But the College has also had a profound effect on Denver and Colorado through the productive lives of our alumni, our work in the community and as an employer and purchaser of goods and services. As we conclude our 45th year, we wanted to highlight the fact that not only do we educate Colorado, we impact it, too.”
Keo Frazier, interim senior director of marketing, says, “This exhibit is filled with fun—and impressive—facts about how Metro State has made its mark on Denver and Colorado. I think of it as a Metro State digital museum of good works, with visuals and audio.”

“Send the links to family and friends. We want everyone to know the kind of impact the College has had; we want this to go viral,” says Frazier.
The “45 Degrees of Impact” digital exhibit is part of a promotional campaign that includes a colorful print brochure. To learn more about the campaign or to receive copies of the print brochure, contact the Office of College Communications at 303-556-5122.
