Jamie Van Leeuwen currently serves as the Senior Advisor for Governor Hickenlooper after almost four years as Deputy Chief of Staff and Director of Community Partnerships.  Leading up to the Hickenlooper administration, he worked as the Policy Director and served on the transition team for the Hickenlooper for Colorado gubernatorial campaign.  He is also the founder and CEO of the Global Livingston Institute, a non- governmental organization in East Africa designed to engage students and community leaders to develop innovative solutions to poverty and is a Senior Research Fellow with the Buechner Institute at the University of Colorado Denver School of Public Affairs.  He became a Fulbright Scholar in 2013.

Prior to his role in the public sector, Jamie directed fundraising, legislative work and research as the Director of Development & Public Affairs at Urban Peak, a Colorado non-profit agency serving homeless and at-risk youth.  During his tenure at Urban Peak he was appointed to serve a two-year term on the National Council for Youth Policy for the National Network of Youth.   He is a graduate of Leadership Denver (2002), Emerging Leaders (2003), and Leadership Arts (2004) and has served as an adjunct faculty member at Metropolitan State University of Denver, University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver.  Jamie was selected in 2005 as a Livingston Fellow by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Board to cultivate his leadership in the non-profit community in Colorado and in 2006 was named one of “Forty Under Forty” by the Denver Business Journal.  

Since 2009, he has worked to develop a research and learning institute for students and community leaders in Uganda and Rwanda.  He is the recipient of the 2009 “Judy Kaufman Civic Entrepreneurship Award” from the Denver Foundation, the 2010 Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation Alumnus of the Year, and named in the 2011 Power Issue of the Out Front magazine as a leader in Lesbian & Gay community.
