From our earliest elementary school years, all of us have experienced the sense of renewal and fresh opportunities that a new academic year brings. As the Anschutz Medical Campus welcomes back our students and once again vibrates with the energy they bring, we celebrate that hope, opportunity and renewal. On the heels of a tremendously challenging summer that confronted us with the harsh realities of violence, the faculty, staff and students exhibited strength, resilience, compassion and heroism. In the most difficult of circumstances, there were countless examples of everything good and important this campus stands for as a family and a treasured community resource.
The academic year ahead will certainly bring its own unique challenges, but we will embrace the many new opportunities to propel our campus, missions and programs into the future.
Best wishes for a successful and productive year.
Vice President for Health Affairs, University of Colorado
