I thank President Kennedy for his service to the University of Colorado. His leadership during this historic pandemic required a unique combination of flexibility and understanding that will continue to serve us into the future. I have appreciated working with President Kennedy over the past two years as he worked to advance the university and serve the people of Colorado.

Our campus will continue to focus on returning to a fuller student experience this fall; improving diversity, equity and inclusion; and ensuring our fiscal resilience. 

CU Boulder campus leaders and I stand ready with our colleagues across the CU system to support our University of Colorado regents as they embark upon this transition.
