This year has been different, so our State of the Campus message is different.
When I look back on 2020, I’ll reflect on the hardships, but also on the resiliency of all of you and our great institution. I’ll always remember the strengthened fabric of our community and carry with me the lessons learned to benefit today’s and tomorrow’s Buffs.
We have engaged with our broader community throughout the year in unprecedented ways. Difficult decisions were made a little easier because of this ongoing conversation. Along the way, we clarified our priorities and gained a new appreciation for what’s important—each other—while continuing to lead, innovate, impact and shape tomorrow’s leaders.
Stay tuned early in the new year as I’m joined in conversation by campus leaders and experts to pull the curtain back on our three biggest priorities: how to build a more anti-racist community, become more fiscally resilient, and create a more COVID-19-ready campus. Look for opportunities to engage on these issues throughout the spring semester.
In the meantime, please accept my deepest appreciation for everything you’ve done under the most difficult circumstances.
