The 2018 Colorado Capital Conference was held in Washington, DC. UCCS Chancellor Venkat Reddy served as the host for the University of Colorado along with Tim Foster, President of Colorado Mesa University. This year added a third university partner, Colorado State University, hosted by President Tony Frank. U.S. Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) collaborated with the universities in the annual bipartisan event.
On Overdose Awareness Day, Congressman Mike Coffman visited the CU Anschutz Medical Campus and joined Chancellor Elliman and the Colorado Consortium on Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention for an event highlighting the state’s response to the opioid crisis.
