CU Denver’s Senior Vice Chancellor for Strategic Enrollment and Student Success, Monique Snowden, PhD, was recently featured in a podcast hosted by DataU, a production from Steppingblocks, to talk more about the university’s visionary 2030 Strategic Plan, “Make Education Work for All.”
Steppingblocks is an analytics engine that produces data-driven tools for student/institutional success outcomes—which is one of Snowden’s areas of expertise. She joined CU Denver in July 2021. Bringing 30 years of experience attracting and supporting diverse student populations, Snowden, a first-generation college student, plays an integral role in holistically shaping the student experience, from pre-enrollment through graduation.
The podcast episode focuses on two key areas of CU Denver’s 2030 Strategic Plan: goal one, to become the nation’s first equity-serving institution, and goal two, to become known as a university for life. DataU notes that both are instrumental in catalyzing social mobility and providing a diverse workforce for the future.
“My passion really for students comes from the fact that it has been the difference in my life relative to mobility,” Snowden said during her interview. “And that’s what I try to do with my career: is try to help students find the right path for them.”
