Danielle Glassner is a senior at UCCS, majoring in Political Science with a minor in Pre-Law. As well, she works at the Center for Homeland Security on campus as a student assistant. In late January, Danielle was invited by the El Paso County Chair to run for the appointment and on February 9th she was elected along with 36 others from 97 candidates.
“Danielle is one of the hardest working and most driven young people I know”, says Steven Peck, Manager at CHS and her direct supervisor. “In addition to her aggressive course schedule and estimated early graduation, she also works half-time for us in the Center, is an active member of the campus’ Young Republicans club, one of the Colorado Springs Chapter’s Young Professionals of the World Affairs Council, and volunteered over 100 hours last election season to election efforts in El Paso.”
CHS provides for-credit and not-for-credit education, training, and seminars in Homeland Defense and Security, Security Intelligence, Disaster Public Health, and resiliency, here at home and internationally. Developing professionals and providing them the tools to be successful is just part of what CHS does; impacting and empowering young students to be effective in the workplace is at the core of every effort the Center undertakes.
