Photo Feature: 50th celebrations

As part of the university’s 50th anniversary celebration, faculty and staff gathered on El Pomar Plaza Aug. 19 to recreate a photo taken in 1990. The original photo was part of the UCCS 25th anniversary celebrations.

Five faculty and staff staff members who were  born in 1965 also posed with the UCCS mascot, Clyde, to celebrate sharing the year of their birth with the founding of the university.

  • Rhea Taylor, associate director, Budget and Planning Office
  • Maria Goñi, senior instructor, Languages and Cultures Department
  • Martin Toetz, detective, Public Safety Department
  • Valerie Martin Conley, dean, College of Education
  • Daniel Segal, professor and faculty supervisor, Psychology Department


From left to right: Taylor, Goñi, Toetz, Conley and Segal were born the same year UCCS was founded.
