University of Colorado sets schedule for presidential finalist forums

Mark Kennedy will meet with CU community members at four campuses, system administration offices

DENVER – Mark Kennedy, University of Colorado presidential finalist, will visit each of the four campuses and system administration offices to meet with CU community members the week of April 22.

The CU Board of Regents this week named Kennedy as its finalist for president. He will spend one day at each location, meeting with representatives from faculty, staff and student governance groups, and campus leadership teams. He also will speak at a series of open forums (schedule below).

Kennedy will tour each campus and participate in receptions with key business and community members, as well as donors.

Participants in the meetings and events will be invited to provide feedback via an online form. All comments on the finalist will be provided to the Board of Regents.

In advance of his arrival, Kennedy today issued a letter to the CU Community.

“I am honored and humbled that the Board of Regents has named me as finalist for the CU presidency and I look forward to visiting each campus to meet as many of you as possible,” Kennedy wrote. “I am excited about the prospect of working together to elevate the positive impact and reputation of CU.”
