Reflecting on Challenges and Opportunities

Letter  •

Dear DU Community,

As week three of spring quarter comes to a close, we have so much to talk about.

On Monday, April 20, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. MT, I invite students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents to join me and other community members for a digital conversation about how physical distance has impacted teaching, learning, wellbeing and our sense of community at DU.

At this event—The Chancellor’s Virtual Town Hall: Reflecting on Challenges and Opportunities—five community members will share their personal experiences, and also what they are hearing and learning from their colleagues and friends. Here is the Zoom link for easy reference.

  • Anne DePrince, professor of psychology and director of DU’s Center for Community Engagement to Advance Scholarship and Learning (CCESL);
  • Alex Kaddah ’21, finance major, men’s soccer player and board member on the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC);
  • Mary Kudoadzi ’21, computer science major, Pioneer Leadership Program Scholars’ Board, president of DU’s Joint Council representing undergraduate affinity groups;
  • Niki Latino, associate vice chancellor for Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence (SAIE); and
  • Tom Romero, assistant provost of inclusive excellence and research and curriculum initiatives, associate professor in the Sturm College of Law, affiliate faculty in the Department of History, and faculty director for IRISE, DU’s Interdisciplinary Research Institute for the Study of (in)Equality. 

You are welcome to send questions in advance to

Enjoy a peaceful and healthy weekend, and I hope to see you on Monday!
