The Comcast Media and Technology Center was made possible by a cash and in-kind contribution from Comcast Cable valued at $5 million. The partnership builds on Comcast’s strong ongoing relationship with CU Denver, illustrating its commitment to the Denver technology community, and providing a critical resource for educating media and technology professionals for future job openings in Denver.
“The Comcast Media and Technology Center is an example of how CU Denver works with our industry partners to develop innovative approaches to the problems of today,” said CU Denver Chancellor Dorothy Horrell. “We’re grateful for Comcast’s support and delighted to be able to offer this resource for the community.”
“We are proud of the role we’ve been able to play in building Denver’s vibrant technology community, and are committed to helping it grow and thrive,” said Matt McConnell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Comcast Technology Solutions. “The Comcast Media and Technology Center will help to empower the professionals of today and tomorrow with the skills they need to innovate the next generation of rich, immersive media experiences.”
Comcast, as part of its mission to invest in the community, will offer internships to CU Denver students involved in the center.
