Student Wellness Center is now hiring!


Greetings CU Denver community!

I wanted to update you on some big news for the new University of Colorado Denver Student Wellness Center. On Friday, Dec. 8, CU Denver Chancellor Dorothy Horrell, PhD, announced to the Student Government Association (SGA) that the wellness center has received a very generous gift of $10 million dollars from Lola and Rob Salazar.

In gratitude, the center has been renamed the CU Denver Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center.

To learn more about the Salazars, their gift and the positive impact it will have on the wellness center, our students and the entire CU Denver community, we have several resources available online:

“CUDenver Today” article

We thank the Salazars for their generosity and support of our students. As construction on the building continues, we expect the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center to open in May 2018.

If I can answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at

Be well!
