Photo essay: UCCS and Cheyenne Mountain artifact display

Two artifact displays remembering the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and highlighting the interconnectedness of the world were dedicated this week at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station and on campus.

A team of UCCS engineering students led the design of the artifact displays in cooperation with Air Force engineers.

Military, community and university leaders participated in the ceremonies captured by University Advancement’s Jeff Foster and Tom Hutton.
