Dear Infrastructure and Sustainability team,
I want to thank everyone who helped make our first in-person commencement since 2019 a resounding success. Over the last few weeks, I have continued to receive praise and gratitude for the great work that you all did.
Our organization plays a crucial role in staging CU Boulder’s culminating event of the year. Many of you pitched in by leading graduates into the stadium, welcoming guests, driving golf carts, assisting with wheelchairs, coordinating waste and recycling efforts and much more.
These efforts help make the day a memorable one for our graduates and project a glowing image of the campus to the family and friends who visit to help them celebrate. Kudos for a job well done.
To recognize your great work at commencement and throughout the rest of the year, please save the date for our Summer Appreciation Picnic on July 28. This will be a time to honor and celebrate our entire Infrastructure and Sustainability team. We’ll have some great raffle prizes and refreshments for all. Keep an eye out for more information to come.
Finally, summer is often a time to take a break from work and to rejuvenate. Staff who will have excess vacation leave on July 1 must use any overage before June 30 or they will lose it. (If you were expected to have overage, you have received an email from Jen Salyers in March.) We value you taking time off to unplug and recharge, so please make sure you’re taking off the time you have earned and deserve.
With pride for all you do at CU,
Chris Ewing, interim vice chancellor for infrastructure and sustainability
