David L. Ikenberry announced today that he has reconsidered and will decline an offer to be reappointed as dean of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder. Ikenberry will join the Leeds faculty.

“As we look to the future, it is clear to me that the climate within Leeds needs to improve if it is to meet its full potential to be a top business school,” Ikenberry said.

Senior Vice Provost Bill Kaempfer, an esteemed economist, will serve as the interim dean while formulating plans for a national search. https://www.colorado.edu/today/node/19638/

Our new Space Minor allows undergraduate students, regardless of major, to obtain a minor that complements their major degree with a set of five space-related courses.

“The Space Minor provides CU Boulder students, both technical and non-technical majors, with an opportunity to understand the language, concepts and issues associated with the science and technology of Earth and space,” said Steve Nerem, faculty director of the Space Minor and professor in Aerospace Engineering Sciences.

Students can learn more at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, at the Fiske Planetarium or online at http://bit.ly/2c5Fut1

Taylor Winchell, a graduate researcher in the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) and lead author of a new study, says that earlier snowmelt carries drastic consequences for forests.

“This study shows us that, counterintuitively, warming generally causes snow to melt during colder periods of the seasonal temperature cycle earlier in the year,” said Winchell. “The colder temperatures associated with early melt reduce the trees’ ability to uptake carbon during the snowmelt period.” https://www.colorado.edu/news/node/2997995/

Happy Colorado Day, Buffs! We were founded in 1876, the same year that Colorado became a state.

Ditch the desk and go work outside! Sixteen third-year Environmental Design students spent their spring semester designing and building a temporary modular meeting and work space in Central Park in downtown Boulder.

“Work spaces are not typically public, like this,” said Marcel de Lange, senior instructor in the program of environmental design. “This project brings people together in an open public space. It’s been a super fun project.”
