CU Boulder Where You Are banner

Due to the March 22 tragedy in Boulder, the March 23 episode of CU Boulder Where You Are: Exploring CU Boulder’s Counterculture through the Archives will be postponed until a later date. 

Chancellor DiStefano will be joining the weekly Campus Q&A for the March 23 community discussion.

Further information will be distributed via email and social media as it becomes available.

The chancellor’s virtual outreach series, CU Boulder Where You Are: An Online Series Highlighting Teaching, Research and Innovation, will feature four episodes this spring on what a holistic approach to student wellness really means, why inclusion matters, the power of storytelling to shape our world, and how the scientific process can help us build cultural understanding.  

The lunchtime series kicks off Tuesday, March 2. 

Each episode will be produced in a talk show format with various experts. Some will be pre-recorded, but there will be ample time for real-time audience engagement around the topic. The series is free and open to the public. All events begin at noon.
