Daryl MaedaTo the fall graduates: Please accept my sincerest congratulations on your graduation from the University of Colorado Boulder.  

You have done something remarkable—overcoming the unprecedented local, national and global challenges of the last two years, and coming together in mutual support and in a spirit of community to take the first important step in a lifetime of achievement and learning. 

In meeting these challenges, you have changed in remarkable ways, and you have changed CU Boulder for the better. As you continue on your journey of learning, the university will be represented in all you achieve, and you will bring honor to it in all you achieve. We, in turn, will rejoice in all that you are and all that you do. 

On behalf of the University of Colorado Boulder, thank you for your contributions to our campus community. I wish you the best of luck in the coming years.

Daryl Maeda
Dean and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education
