RRCC Foundation Welcomes New Board Member
Red Rocks Community College Foundation Welcomes Alicia Disantis

LAKEWOOD, CO - The Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Foundation welcomed Alicia Disantis to its Board of Directors at its meeting on January 20, 2022.

Alicia Disantis is the Founder of 38th & Kip, a branding and design studio based in Denver, and Brand Manager of Aux, an organization who helps financial institutions stay strong. She is passionate about all things branding, like storytelling, values, and visuals. She specializes in helping purpose-driven organizations, the “people doing good,” understand their importance and reach their audience.

"I am honored to serve on the Board of Directors for RRCC Foundation because of their tenacity and passion for helping students succeed against all odds," says Disantis. "I've never experienced a college so committed to their students' needs as Red Rocks. And as a former community college attendee, it feels natural to pay it forward and help students in the way my community college helped me."

Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, Alicia moved to Denver, CO in during the great recession in search of better opportunities. Here she founded her studio and began to work with credit unions, which led to her passion for helping companies who are making a difference. A firm believer in the power of education, Alicia understands first-hand the hardships students face and how community colleges can provide them with a lifetime of benefits.

Alicia has an B.A. in Art from University of Toledo and a M.A. in Arts Management from Columbia College Chicago. Her thesis, “The Branding of a Rust Belt City” was completed in the shortest time in the department’s history and she continues to study how organizations, cities, and people reinvent themselves.

In addition to her support of the work of the College, Alicia is a proud supporter of animal rights and greyhound adoption and is an avid traveler, photographer and illustrator.

“Alicia brings incredible energy and fresh perspectives to the Foundation’s distinguished Board of Directors," says Angela King, the Executive Director of Institutional Advancement at RRCC.  "She shares our passion for the work being done every day at Red Rocks to change lives via education.”
