100 Days of Listening Tour
Over the course of my first 100 days, I heard from more than 1,000 faculty, staff, students, friends, and partners of the university through a series of informal listening sessions. I also collected input and ideas via an online form and through personal interactions and meetings. I learned so much about what is important to the Lynx community and what you hope for our future. I look forward to the many discussions and conversations still to come as we design that future together.

In addition to the 62 official listening sessions, I met with hosts of other faculty, staff, student, and friends of CU Denver through introductory meetings.
More than 5,000 ideas bubbled up from the listening sessions, meetings, online comments, and informal interactions that took place in my first 100 days. There was a lot of agreement on what we do really well, where we have vulnerabilities, and the vast possibilities that lie before us. Read on to learn all about the themes that emerged and where we go from here.
“I want to commend you for doing 100 Days of Listening. One of the things I'm hearing even in this call is how powerful CU Denver’s faculty and staff are. Listen to your people for the ideas they have.”
