CRI Staff Update

Van Wyke Retires, CRI Welcomes Denler

Milile Van Wyke Retires
Millie Van Wyke, Assistant to the Director of Graduate Programs, retired from CRI in November after a long career with the University. University faculty, staff and graduate students gathered at an evening celebration to commemorate her retirement and wish her well.
Millie began working at the University of Denver in 1976. She first worked with Professor Karen Feste in 1981 on the Monograph Series in World Affairs, an International Studies quarterly. The two continued to work together when Karen became Associate Dean of the Graduate School of International Studies in 1988, with Millie as Administrative Assistant. Millie has been working intermittently with the Conflict Resolution Program from its inception in 1998 through its elevation to an Institute in 2004.
She has been a great help and source of information and encouragement to conflict resolution graduate students and will be
missed by all. Millie, we will miss you, but wish you the best in your retirement and your world travels.
CRI Welcomes Kay Denler
The Institute welcomes Kay Denler as the new Assistant to the Director, Graduate Programs. Kay comes to us from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, where she was the Associate Director in International Programs. At Trinity College, Kay advised students on study away programs, administered several study away sites, and handled all international student programming, including immigration law. We are excited to have her in Graduate Programs, where her expertise in working with students will be invaluable.
