Increasing overall student retention rate is a great step in our journey to improve our campus community. To continue this journey, how can we all contribute to a campus that is not only welcoming, but an engaging place to be?

CU Boulder is a highly complex environment of many interconnected parts, but the root of our success is our people – talented and passionate in all of their fields.

We are moving into this new academic year with a focus on innovation across all elements of our enterprise, and I look forward to how these innovations will support our employees and our educational and research mission.

From the Provost: Living the Colorado Creed

Sept. 12, 2016

Colleges and universities often are seen as places to discuss our ideas, debate our differences and openly engage persons with whom we may not agree. Those debates and disagreements appear sharper and less open to compromise during an election season, particularly an election with as much acrimony as the one currently underway. It is during times like these when it becomes incumbent upon us, as members of the CU Boulder community, to remember the Colorado Creed and how we can choose to live its values.

The campaign season is upon us and we know from recent experience that our campus is a popular location for campaign stops. Participating in the democratic process is certainly a privilege, but as public employees we have special responsibilities.

College life offers students a rich array of choices when it comes to meeting new people, engaging in new opportunities and exploring new concepts and ideas. It’s what the university experience is all about—embarking on a personal quest to become critical thinkers and engaged individuals. As your new associate vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students, it is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the University of Colorado Boulder, where you are entering a proud Buff community!
