From Interim Vice Chancellor Bradley: Financial assistance, finals support and more

April 22, 2020

While this past month has been stressful and disrupting for many of us, the end of the semester is in sight and you are almost done. I’ll be honest—this isn’t the way any of us anticipated the spring semester ending. These may be challenging times, but you aren’t alone and we are here to help you finish strong—wherever you may be.

April 22, 2020

We were both a lot younger when I started teaching at CU 46 years ago. Now we are both older—and greener. The Environmental Center celebrates its 50th anniversary today as the nation’s first student-led environmental center, founded on the first Earth Day in 1970.
