IECE to take over Peace Corps program
The Institute for Ethical and Civic Engagement (IECE) will assume responsibility for the CU-Boulder Peace Corps program, effective Aug. 1. “We are thrilled to administer such an important program,” said Peter Simons, IECE director. CU-Boulder is the sixth university in the country to surpass 2,000 graduates who have served in the Peace Corps and is also ranked third in the country in graduates (100) currently serving in the Peace Corps. Only the University of Washington and University of Wisconsin, Madison are ranked higher and we are aiming to take over first place! For more information, email  or visit

Leeds move in starts Aug. 4
The Leeds School of Business moves into the newly expanded, renovated and renamed Koelbel Building Aug. 4-5. The Leeds School has been temporarily housed in Fleming while the existing 100,000-square-foot, business school building was renovated and integrated with a 65,000-square-foot, four-story addition in a $38-million project. The expanded building was renamed in honor of the Koelbel family, leaders in Colorado real estate development, construction and sales and long-time supporters of CU and the business school.

“Buffs” bus advertisements to promote campus events calendar
In the coming weeks, be on the lookout for a series of eight CU-Boulder advertisements on local buses. Designed to promote the many events that take place on campus, the ads will run from August through October, sending the message that there are many different kinds of “Buffs” on the Boulder campus—from film Buffs to music Buffs, culture Buffs to art Buffs, and more. The ads are part of an Office of Community Relations-led effort to increase awareness of the CU-Boulder Events Calendar and bring more community members to campus attractions. If you have or know of an upcoming event that is not on the calendar, now is a great time to add it. All events should be located on campus and open to the public.

New CUPD police cars 
The CU-Boulder Police Department recently acquired two new squad cars. The two gasoline-powered 2007 Chevrolet Tahoes are replacing two of their older, less reliable vehicles in order to make patrolling a little more efficient. CU Police Commander Brad Wiesley said, “The new vehicles will be more reliable than the older models, and the 4x4 capabilities will help with the adverse weather conditions that Boulder tends to have at times.” The vehicles are currently in the process of becoming fully equipped with all of the emergency features including sirens, dual spots and emergency lights, prisoner partitions, and radio communication equipment. Look for the new vehicles on and around campus sometime in early August.
