A university that aspires to shape tomorrow's leaders, be the top university for innovation and positively impact humanity cannot do any of those things in an atmosphere of mistrust, isolation and constant conflict.
As you may know, ongoing budget negotiations have failed to produce a stopgap funding agreement in Congress. We are tracking this issue carefully and monitoring potential impacts on our students, faculty, staff and research programs.
As a community, we had a tremendous fall semester involving the Be Boulder Pact, the CU Impact Scholarship, record-breaking research revenues, countless achievements made from all corners of campus and more. We look forward to an exciting spring.
Whether it's Academic Futures, innovation grants or fresh approaches to everyday processes, I know the momentum you're building will bring an amazing finish to the semester and lay the groundwork for a vital future.
Congratulations on a successful semester! After going through the stress that comes with finals, I encourage you all to use some time over the next few weeks to practice self-care, relax and recharge over winter break.
