Director of Alumni Career & Professional Development

Cindy Hyman

I’ve worked at the University of Denver for 12+ years in the Sturm College of Law, Daniels College of Business, Alumni Relations and for the last four years in Alumni Career & Professional Development. The favorite part of my week is the opportunity to talk with alumni, hear their stories and find ways to help them achieve their professional goals.

I’m a connector and enjoy teaching people how to tap into their networks to form mutually beneficial relationships. DU alumni are an incredibly accomplished group and the DU network is an invaluable asset.

In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, golf, travel and spending time with my husband, two sons and daughter-in-law, three of whom are proud DU alumni.
