Chancellor's Corner: Climate Survey results and future actions

Jan. 21, 2016

On Jan. 21 we released the results of two student climate surveys – one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. The two surveys were conducted at the end of 2014, and we are committed to addressing the key findings. Our goal is to ensure all students at CU-Boulder experience a welcoming environment that maximizes their academic performance and prepares them for success after graduation. In the coming months, you should begin to see and hear more discussions about our campus culture and inclusive excellence. Every one of us needs to make a commitment to creating the type of place where everyone can thrive.

As you likely realize, last Thursday, Dec. 3 was the launch date for the upgrade to the campus PeopleSoft Human Capital Management System (HCM). This will be followed on Thursday, Dec. 10 by the launch of the upgraded PeopleSoft Financials (FIN). These two dates also mark the completion of nearly two years of effort on the part of the CU System and a wide range of individuals on the Boulder campus.

Chancellor's Corner: Staying unified and supportive in the wake of the Paris attacks

Nov. 18, 2015

As we mourn the loss of life in Paris and conduct outreach it is important that we re-affirm our values as a campus by providing support to the French students studying with us in Boulder, to our American students studying in France, and to the valued members of our Muslim community on campus. I want us to rise to the challenge of this difficult international moment by greeting tragedy with healing and conflict with understanding, and by refusing to inject more rancor and reprisal into the mix.
