As a CU Boulder student, Roe Green (CommThtr) fell in love with theater. Initially an art major, she switched her freshman year after volunteering to take notes for a faculty director during a theater class. She became enamored with the theater’s backstage and management aspects. This year, she donated $5 million to CU Boulder’s theater program. It is the Department of Theatre & Dance’s largest gift in history, and it will fund an upgrade for the University Theatre — which will be renamed the Roe Green Theatre in fall 2023 — as well as establish endowed funds for student scholarships and fund events to further students’ careers. “Theater and the performing arts make us human,” she told CU Boulder Today in September. “This is how we pass on what we know.”
