The following joint memo from the four chancellors of the University of Colorado campuses was published on Wednesday, Apr. 27, 2022.
As chancellors of the University of Colorado’s four campuses, we are delighted that the Board of Regents has approved Todd Saliman to continue as CU’s president on a permanent basis. We have worked closely with President Saliman over the years, and especially during the current academic year while he served as interim president. We have great respect for him and full confidence in his leadership. Simply put, he loves CU and the state of Colorado. And we can’t think of a better supporter for our university. We thank the Regents for their collaborative work and unanimous vote of support.
President Saliman is a Colorado native and CU Boulder alum who went on to serve as a state lawmaker, Cabinet member for two governors, and CU System administrator in charge of budget operations for more than a decade. He has the credentials and temperament to continue working closely with the campuses to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion; advocate for additional state funding for higher education; boost student success and retention; and expand our growing research portfolio for projects here in Colorado and around the world.
We are strongest as a leading public university when we work together and have a common vision toward ambitious goals. With President Saliman remaining at the helm, we are excited to continue this important collaborative work with all of you.
Congratulations, President Saliman!
Philip DiStefano, Chancellor, CU Boulder
Don Elliman, Chancellor, CU Anschutz Medical Campus
