Please see the letter sent to BFA representatives and liaisons on Tuesday, April 2, 2024 and share widely.

Dear Colleagues,
Today President Saliman sent an email to all campus members with details on the selection of Dr. Justin Schwartz as the finalist for the CU Boulder Chancellor search as well as information on the open forums scheduled for Thursday, April 4th in the UMC Aspen Rooms. 

Thursday, April 4 - all forums will be held in the UMC Aspen Rooms (or via livestream):
• Faculty – 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.
• Staff – 9:15 – 10:15 a.m.
• Students – 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Please attend one of these sessions in person or via livestream and encourage your colleagues to attend too. You can view details on the CU Boulder Chancellor Search – Finalist Campus Visits.  Campus members are asked to complete a finalist feedback survey after these sessions. 

As a BFA representative I ask that you ensure all your constituents are aware of the visit and the importance of faculty feedback. State law requires a 14-day waiting period in which feedback about the candidate is gathered and reviewed. The survey will launch on April 4 and remain open through Tuesday, April 9 at 5pm.

See this page for more information on the chancellor transition process.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
