Infrastructure and Safety Mentorship Program participants

Mentor-mentee teams participating in the Infrastructure and Safety Mentorship Program were recognized at a May 19 ceremony marking completion of the program.

Twenty-seven mentor-mentee teams received recognition at a May 19 ceremony for completing the Infrastructure and Safety Mentorship Program (ISMP).

CU Boulder Senior Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer Kelly Fox provided keynote comments and took questions from program participants during the ceremony at the Center for Community Flatirons Room.

Now wrapping up its fifth year, the ISMP is designed to provide Infrastructure and Safety staff with an opportunity for both professional and personal development through a variety of self-directed activities as mentor team participants.

“I’m so pleased that each of you took the initiative to be a part of this,” Fox told the group. “What I love about this program is the fact that you’re a mentor-mentee team. It doesn’t come in with a hierarchical assumption, but rather that we can all learn from each other.”

The ISMP started within Facilities Management but was expanded for the 2016–17 session to include all departments in the vice chancellor’s Office for Infrastructure and Safety—a list that includes the CU Boulder Police Department; Environmental Health and Safety; Planning, Design and Construction; Facilities Operations and Services; and Real Estate Services. Participants this year ranged from Infrastructure and Safety senior leaders to supervisors and frontline staff.

The 2017–18 edition of the ISMP will begin in September, with the application process starting in August. Questions about the program can be directed to Andy Mead by emailing
