The Department of Ethnic Studies wishes a fond, yet bittersweet farewell to two valued members of our community. Professor Elisa Facio has been a part of Ethnic Studies since before the department existed, playing a key role in the creation of CSERA and the Department in the early to mid-1990s. In addition to missing her presence as a committed scholar, teacher, and valued mentor to our students, we will miss Dr. Facio as the living memory of the department and the struggles that brought it into existence. She is retiring from CU Boulder and will take a position at Eastern Washington University. Best wishes on the next phase of your career, Dr. Facio!
Christie Ferber, our much valued Program Assistant, has been an integral part of the department for the past year and a half. We will miss her cheerfulness and constant willingness to help students, faculty, and staff alike. Best of luck, Christie!
