Cynthia Hashert

Cynthia has been an active participant since 2009 in the renovation of the Auraria Library, which serves three institutions of higher education, the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Community College of Denver. Throughout the multi-year projects, Cynthia convened essential conversations that ensured robust campus relationships and staff engagement. Reflective of her highly consultative approach, she invited students’ research-based design recommendations and advanced campus learning partners’ collaborations. Within the library organization, she furthered staff appreciation for repurposing facility spaces and, concurrently, reinventing service models. Cynthia’s visionary leadership guaranteed inclusive participation and responsive design. She earlier held positions at the University of Texas at Arlington libraries and earned a MLIS from the University of North Texas.
