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/

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/

The ability to understand and empathize with others’ pain is grounded in cognitive neural processes rather than sensory ones, according to the results of a new study led by Tor Wager, director of the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience.

“The research suggests that empathy is a deliberative process that requires taking another person’s perspective rather than being an instinctive, automatic process,” said Wager.

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

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.”

Class of 2015, I would highly recommend the INVST program above all else at CU, the school could improve how they handle on campus housing for freshman, but I had a really great experience my last three years.

Beautiful campus with a unique and breathtaking Rocky Mountain backdrop. For the most part, top notch facilities and excellent professors.

Fabulous Colorado university with a beautiful mountain back drop. Close to Denver, a major city. And the town provided a nice school / life / job balance.

Minor concerns about the school's prioritization of sports over academics but overall it was a great experience. I also got a job right out of school so that helps.

One of the most beautiful campuses in the country located in a magnificent setting. Love this school, the engineering school is one of the best and the students are a lot of fun. Don't understand any of the whiners on this site, can't think of a better place to go to college. If you could moved the entire campus and faculty as is to California it would instantaneously drop the admission rate down into the low 20 percent due to the competition to get in. Academic ratings would skyrocket with no changes to the programs. Look at UCSD, UCLA, UCB and UCSB what they have that Boulder doesn't is a state with 40 million people killing themselves to get into one of their better public universities.

CU has a reputation of exploiting young women. From scandals involving the football team recruiting that resulted in many women reporting rape and assault. Knowing that I am not surprised that the CU athletic department is under the covers with a private school like Southwest Acupuncture College "SWAC". In 2013 this school was sited for multiple noncompliance of accretive standards. The school was knowingly operating outside standards and under educating the student population as a result. In 2014 students from this school began working on the CU girls basketball team. What the hell CU? Why do you present high standards for women but give them support from undereducated student practitioners who attend a school with a know past history of low standards. I thought from your commercials that CU had standards. Guess not.

The campus is beautiful and the CEM graduate program is ranked in the top 15 in the country. The graduate program has a great culture and the professors seem to love their work and are respectful and genuinely concerned about the success of their students. The in state tuition rates are very reasonable for the quality of education received. My family and I have greatly enjoyed our time in the area.
