Chancellor DiStefano and other University of Colorado Boulder representatives spent last week traveling more than 800 miles on a statewide outreach tour. The chancellor spoke about new initiatives at the university and how the Boulder campus is connected to so many places around the state.

Dr. David Brain, an assistant professor in the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, spoke about the MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere Volatile EvolutioN) project, the CU-Boulder-led mission to Mars. Ryan Chreist, assistant vice chancellor for alumni relations, spoke about the benefits of joining the Forever Buffs Alumni Association, a non-dues organization that supports more than 200,000 alumni. The tour included presentations in the Denver Tech Center, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Durango, Grand Junction, Carbondale and Vail. Hundreds of alumni, parents and friends attended the events.
