Like other universities nationwide, the CU Boulder campus is embarking on a transformation and financial resiliency initiative to proactively address projections that expenses will exceed revenues in FY27. The School of Education is simultaneously facing a pivotal juncture for the sustainability of our budget that requires us to think collectively and collaboratively about ways to address our shortfalls in the near term.  

The school's budget transformation project aims to provide budget resiliency through transparency and multiple points of engagement for faculty, staff, and students. A representative Ad Hoc Budget Sustainability Committee will regularly engage with students, staff, and faculty and advise the leadership team and dean.

Our vibrant School of Education community and our equity and justice commitments are critical parts of CU Boulder’s mission and service to the state and nation — those truths have not and will not waver. We are committed to thinking and working together, remaining student- and people-centric, and upholding our vital research, teaching, and public mission.

Thank you for your collaboration, positivity, and confidence in our positive intent as we work through this process together, 

Fernando Rosario-Ortiz, Interim Dean
