2016 Leadership in Global Engagement Award
On May 12th, DCFR concluded its exciting year by hosting the 2016 Leadership in Global Engagement Award celebration. This annual event was the organization’s third gala in which it awarded an outstanding patron of the Rocky Mountain Region for their historic contributions to the international community. 

Daniel Ritchie’s contributions to our community are extraordinary. He currently serves as the Chairman and CEO of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts while also serving as President for both the Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation and the Independent Higher Education of Colorado Fund. In addition to his numerous positions in leadership, Mr. Ritchie has dedicated nearly 20 years of service and support to the University of Denver, the oldest private university in the Rocky Mountain region, and the school has steadily gained stature and strengthened academic programs.
