We take special pleasure in congratulating our commencement honorees who have given their heart and soul to the University of Colorado and who are the university’s most revered Forever Buffs. These awards, given since 1882, recognize outstanding achievement and contributions to the university, the state, the nation and the world, and are symbolic of all that we aspire to be as a university. These members of our CU community have devoted their lives to honor students, support research to better humanity and promote the value of accessible higher education for all.  Without them, we would not be the university that we are.  We take great pride in honoring each of them and welcome them into a special community of Buffs.
