Department Events & News


Please check back after August 21st for information about the 2017 Fall Semester Seminars.



It is with some sadness and great appreciation that the Department is saying good-bye to our friend and colleague, Dr. Kent Nofsinger, M.D. who will be rietiring at the end of the 2017 summer semester. Kent has been an integral part of the Department for 19 years teaching and advising his students, sharing his vast experience as an Opthalmologist and giving valuable guidance to students seeking careers in the health professions and, he was always ready with a pun just when you need a good laugh. Kent says he’s looking forward to some good fishing, quality grandson time and chasing a few eclipses here and there! 

Enjoy your retirement Dr. Nofsinger, you will definitely be missed by the Department and your students!

Results of her first surveillance, thousands of photos shot by strategically-placed motion-detection cameras, turned up everything from Bambi and Wile E. Coyote to Woody Woodpecker and Pepe LePew. “I was surprised by the skunk,” said Sarah St. Onge, who is working on her degree in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Department of Integrative Biology. “I just haven’t seen one in Colorado before, and there it was in the city.”
