Rising Star Amy M. Kirlin, Director, The Chancellor’s Leadership Class, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs

Amy Kirlin has developed the Chancellor’s Leader-ship Class into the premier leadership development program at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
That’s according to Marta Erhard, co-founder and partner at CorVirtus, who nominated Kirlin as a Rising Star.
Kirlin is responsible for amplifying the potential of CLC scholars through opportunities for personal growth, leadership development and community involvement, using unique academic and co-curricular experiences.
For the past two summers, she has worked with the Daniel’s Fund to plan weeklong educational conferences for high school graduates and she helped create graduate assistantships as part of a redesigned Student Affairs in Higher Education Track.
For three years Kirlin has been active in the Professional Exempt Staff Association, serving as president last year.
This year Kirlin was selected to participate in the University of Colorado’s Emerging Leaders Program. Only six representatives from each CU campus are chosen to participate in the program.
Kirlin also has helped raise money for and participated in Relay for Life and in the 60-mile walk for Breast Cancer.
She has a master’s degree in counseling and human services from UCCS and bachelor’s degree in social relations from James Madison College.
