Final exams kicked off yesterday evening, and I hope everyone is getting ready for the final home stretch before the winter break. This generally is a very busy time of year for our faculty, students and staff and often leaves very little time for reflection on what you all have accomplished as a community during the previous six months.

I would like to take my final column of the semester as an opportunity to celebrate CU's accomplishments with just a few examples of the way CU Boulder is impacting humanity, developing tomorrow’s leaders and establishing CU Boulder as the innovation university.

These achievements represent only a small sample of what our students, faculty and staff have accomplished during the fall 2016 semester. So while we are all focused on finals and the upcoming holidays, please take time to celebrate your accomplishments and contributions. I appreciate greatly all of the hard work everyone has put into this semester, am excited about what the future holds for CU and wish you all the best as we turn our eyes toward 2017.

Thank you again, and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish next year.

Russell Moore,
Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
