Chancellor announces administrative changes

Beginning in the late fall of 2014, Chancellor Chopp began making structural changes at DU that affect CME, and has followed through with a number of Inclusive Excellence-related changes in connection with the ongoing Imagine DU initiatives. She summarized many of these changes in her 8 June 2015 "state of Inclusive Excellence" summary.

Current programs and services through CME, IRISE and Student Life will continue with minimal changes for the foreseeable future. Stay for tuned for updates!
