Todd Cordrey MPA ’10 | Alumni Advocacy AwardMar 24, 2021
CU Denver honors Todd Cordrey MPA ‘10 with the Alumni Advocacy Award for his work in championing the importance of access to higher education across the state of Colorado. Todd is a soon-to-be a multiple CU degree holder, having earned his Master of Public Administration degree from CU Denver’s School of Public Affairs and currently pursuing his PhD in the Leadership for Education Equity program. He has also received a certificate in executive leadership and a licensure from CU Denver’s School of Education and Human Development.
Todd’s efforts in promoting higher education extend throughout his career, which included positions as a sixth-grade teacher, CU Denver faculty member, board president of Brighton Board of Education, and superintendent of the Rangely School District, a rural public school district in northwestern Colorado. He currently serves as executive director of the Early College of Arvada (ECA), a diverse urban charter school. In this role, Todd heads longstanding partnership between ECA and CU Denver with the CU SUCCEED program which provides low-income, first-generation college students with up to 60 college credits while in high school.
His most recent commitment to the community is his regular habit of donating platelets and plasma since the onset of COVID-19.
