Denver university gets $5 million to mix art, tech and entrepreneurship in new center

Denver Post - A $5 million gift to the University of Colorado Denver will combine the study of art and technology with real-world problems in an innovation center named after donor Comcast Corp.

Philadelphia-based Comcast, which employs more than 8,000 people in Colorado, provided the funds partly to invest in a future workforce. But more importantly, said Comcast’s Matt McConnell, students will learn to mix skills — something necessary in the real world that doesn’t always happen if, for example, an engineering student is only studying code.
