As with many institutions across the country, it is with great regret that we are announcing the cancellation of our in-person commencement on May 7, as well as all college, school and department-based recognition ceremonies, due to COVID-19.

I am writing with an update on how we are moving forward to enhance CU Boulder’s anti-racism and anti-harassment efforts to improve the campus experience so that all students, particularly those from underrepresented groups, feel welcome, valued and safe. I will continue meeting with student leaders through the semester to make sure I understand their perspectives as we make progress on these efforts.
