Philip P. DiStefano, Chancellor
Provost and Vice Chancellors
The Division of Academic Affairs is responsible for administering the academic programs and policies of the Boulder campus, and for providing intellectual leadership for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and creative work. The division recruits faculty, deans, and other academic leaders, and allocates resources to ensure high-quality teaching, research and creative work, and service.
The Senior Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer provides leadership in the financial management, operational, and planning activities of the campus. The Senior Vice Chancellor Division includes the offices of the Vice Chancellor for Infrastructure and Safety, Vice Chancellor for Strategic Relations, Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Budget and Fiscal Planning, Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Information Officer, Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Human Resources Officer, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services, Athletic Director, and their respective units.
Larry Levine, Interim Vice Chancellor for Infrastructure and Safety
The Division of Infrastructure and Safety supports the academic mission of the campus, the university system, and the state by providing stewardship and enhancement of the University’s human and physical resources while fostering a safe, healthy, secure, sustainable, and inclusive environment in which to live, learn and work in a fiscally responsive manner. The Division of Infrastructure and Safety oversees the CU-Boulder Police Department, Environmental Health and Safety, Facilities Management, Real Estate Services, and their respective units.
The Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement provides dedicated leadership to CU-Boulder's campus diversity efforts. The office fosters CU-Boulder's vision for a diverse campus climate and works with students, faculty, and staff to implement the campus diversity plan.
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research serves as a focal point for the investment in campus research, scholarship, and creative works, and strives to provide the types of infrastructure and administrative support that is necessary to promote and sustain our world-class faculty and research programs.
Frances Draper manages university communications and government, community, and business relations for the university. She serves on the Chancellor's Cabinet and provides strategic advice to leadership on communications and external relations. She is also involved in uniting campus-wide efforts to implement CU-Boulder's Flagship 2030 strategic plan.
The primary focus of the Division of Student Affairs is to create a positive learning environment that fosters successful learning and personal development, both inside and outside of the traditional classroom. Student learning and success is enhanced when the academic environment and community support students' full development as individuals–not just as isolated intellects–and when students are seen as important partners in the learning experience.
The Vice Chancellor for Advancement oversees the areas of Development and the Alumni Association at the University of Colorado Boulder. The development team is charged with building and maintaining relationships with CU Boulder’s constituents and inviting them to support CU Boulder philanthropically. The purpose of the Alumni Association is to inspire all current and future CU Boulder alumni to develop a lifelong relationship with the university and one another. The Flagship 2030 strategic plan and overall mission of the University of Colorado Boulder guide the priorities and strategies of the Office of Advancement.
