In response to Covid-19...
All Arts & Sciences Honors-qualified students should review the Honors Course registration information on the Arts & Sciences Honors Program web page to self-enroll into an Honors Course for Fall 2020.
The RAPs have been suspended for AY2020-21 and therefore no RAP fees will be charged. However, every incoming student will have the opportunity to receive a First Year Academic Experience. If you have questions about your housing assignment, please see the Housing FAQ page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about registration, please be on the lookout for future communications from the university as fall semester planning is still underway. The university is committed to ensuring that students can return to campus in a safe manner. We really appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to seeing you in the fall.
I came to Boulder from New Mexico to attend CU in 1967 where I earned a BA in Mathematics and Physics. Along the undergraduate way, I was also able to take advantage of the first CU Study Abroad program at the University of Lancaster, England (highly recommended). It was during the turmoil of the Vietnam War era that I became interested in other matters that seemed urgent, and so I pursued a Ph.D. in “Religion and Social Change,” which I received in 1990 from the University of Denver and the Iliff School of Theology. Soon after completing my doctorate, I was invited to teach a course for the Kittredge Honors Program called “The Ethics of Ambition.” Not only have I been teaching a version of this course ever since, but the teaching opportunity led to the invitation to direct the Kittredge Honors Program in 1999. The program moved and changed its name to the Honors RAP, and it has a new director, but I continue my relationship. I also teach “Nonviolence and the Ethics of Social Action” which reflects my personal, research, and writing interest in the strategies of nonviolent social transformation, matters which are of great urgency. I can often be spotted riding my bike around campus (summer and winter) or on the roads in the area. You may also see me on the hiking trails in the mountains.
