I have been privileged to lead the University of Colorado and to work with the many wonderful and dedicated people inside and outside the university who are committed to its success. CU makes critically important contributions to our state and society. Its students, faculty, staff and alumni are our present and our future. I am confident that despite the incredible challenges of the past year, CU is on an upward trajectory and it will continue to advance its critical mission.
