DiStefano, Senior Vice Chancellor and CFO Kelly Fox and Provost Russell Moore.

Moderators were CUSG executive Juedon Kebede and CU-Boulder Professor and Director of the Environmental Studies Program Sharon Collinge, who led the panel in a discussion on topics ranging from the campus culture and climate, to student success and future funding of the institution.

Chancellor's Corner: Spring Town Hall is this Wednesday

Welcome back to campus after what I hope was a rejuvenating break. As we dive into the end of this academic year with renewed vigor, I want to personally invite you to attend the 2015 Spring Town Hall on Wednesday, April 1, at 3 p.m. in the Glenn Miller Ballroom in the UMC. I believe the conversations we have at these sessions and the information we share are important to building a strong community across the campus and aligning us around common goals.

Plan accordingly: Many IT services unavailable tonight

Many campus IT Services will be unavailable from 10 p.m. tonight until 10 a.m. tomorrow morning. The outage was extended due to electrical contractors needing additional time. We anticipate that major services will be available starting at 9 a.m. We appreciate your patience as we work through this complex initiative. Please understand an outage of this size impacts many moving parts, including over 140 services.

MyCUInfo will remain available until midnight to ensure students can add/drop classes before the deadline. Read more.
