To Whom It May Concern:
The Boulder Faculty Assembly welcomes the news that President Mark Kennedy will work with the University of Colorado Board of Regents to bring about an orderly transition of the University’s presidency in the near future. In October 2018, in response to a request from the Board of Regents, the BFA Executive Committee prepared a statement, “Attributes that Should Guide the Selection of the Next CU President,” and we are more certain now than we were then that what we called for has been and will continue to be relevant. When the time comes, the BFA believes that it will be in the best interest of all four campuses of the CU system that the faculty have a robust role in the search for a new leader.
