CU Denver Effect Video Series Launches by Featuring Will Mundo, M.D.

November 29, 2022

For 50 years in the Denver metro region and across Colorado, the nation, and the world, CU Denver students, faculty, staff, and alumni have made a profound impact. They are changemakers, innovators, leaders, and pioneers. During this time, CU Denver has cultivated learners of all kinds and at all stages of life who work with globally engaged scholars to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

As part of the 50th anniversary, the CU Denver Effect celebrates the far-reaching impacts of the Lynx community.

In this edition of the CU Denver Effect series, Dr. William Mundo shares his journey as a first-generation college student to graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Ethnic Studies and Public Health in 2016 from CU Denver, a master’s degree in Public Health (also from CU Denver) and a Doctor of Medicine degree in 2022 from Anschutz Medical Campus. Mundo’s experience at CU Denver didn’t just enable him to achieve his goals—it changed his perspective on medicine’s role in our society. Today, Mundo is featured in a mural that is displayed proudly on the Auraria campus, and he hopes his representation will inspire first-generation students at CU Denver.
