Chancellor's Communiqué

Thank You and Farewell, 6-24-2020

Dear CU Denver Community,

I regret that I’m not able to deliver my farewell message to you in person.  I invite you to view it by video. 

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as your chancellor for the past four and a half years. I’m so proud of all that we’ve accomplished together in defining and fulfilling our role as Colorado’s public urban research university.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to have contributed to the CU Denver legacy, one whose momentum I’m confident will build under the capable leadership of Dr. Michelle Marks.  I trust that you will extend the same grace, friendship, and willing spirit to her that you have shown me.

I leave you with my thanks and best wishes for many continued successes.
