As I told our new freshmen at convocation last Friday, they share curiosity as a driver of their lives with great minds like Stephen Hawking, and with CU’s greatest minds: our Nobel laureates, our past, present and future astronauts, our faculty from more than 150 disciplines.

As those lives demonstrate, curiosity requires commitment.

Commitment from students, first and foremost, to be true to the process of learning and discovering. To do the hard work, ask the difficult questions, repeat the needed experiments, double-check the data and re-write the term paper.

Commitment from our faculty to teach with passion and conviction, with high expectations but also with abundant humanity.

Commitment from staff to support students and faculty, to innovate and to find new and better ways to serve and assist.

Commitment from me and my administration to support the vital work of students, faculty and staff. To find and place resources where they are needed. To see that curiosity is nurtured and elevated at all points in the campus community. To ensure that our learning environment supports fairness, justice, and equality, and is cultivated with respect for all.

As a new academic year begins, I am awed by the energy, excitement, and anticipation around me at CU-Boulder. In all my years here – I now begin my 42nd year on campus – it never ceases to amaze me how the start of the new academic year brings out the best in our community.

Stuck oil rigs, grizzly bears and changing weather patterns are just a few of the obstacles Gijs de Boer and his team of researchers encountered on the ground in Oliktok Point, Alaska.
De Boer, a scientist with +Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences  (CIRES), who works in +National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Earth System Research Laboratory, spent the last two weeks deploying the DataHawk 2, a small, lightweight, unmanned aircraft, designed by CU-Boulder’s Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences. The researchers are using the unmanned aircraft to take measurements of temperature, humidity and winds over the lowest levels of the Arctic atmosphere to better understand the lifecycle of Arctic cloud properties, small-scale wind patterns and the vertical mixing of air between the surface and cloud height. Read a Q&A with de Boer about his Alaska adventure - http://www.colorado.edu/news/features/eight-questions-about-atmospheric-science-alaska-gijs-de-boer

Natural selection, the engine of evolution, can also impede the formation of new species, according to a new CU-Boulder study.
“This is one of the best demonstrations we know of regarding the counteractive effects of natural selection on speciation,” said Samuel Flaxman, assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EBIO) and second author on the study.
The team studied a plant-eating stick insect species from California called Timema cristinae known for its cryptic camouflage that allows it to hide from hungry birds. Walking sticks, one of nature’s oddest insect groups, range in size from the half-inch long to species that are more than a foot long. Most walking sticks rely on plant mimicry to protect them from predators. Full story - http://www.colorado.edu/news/releases/2015/08/05/natural-selection-can-impede-formation-new-species

Cleaning up municipal and industrial wastewater can be dirty business, but a team of engineers at CU-Boulder developed an innovative wastewater treatment process that not only mitigates carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, but actively captures greenhouse gases as well.

“This energy-positive, carbon-negative method could potentially contain huge benefits for a number of emission-heavy industries,” said Zhiyong Jason Ren, an associate professor of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at CU-Boulder and senior author of the new study.

If you are looking to study engineering I do not recommend this University, the reason being a) Most professors are too busy to help you. b) The University tells you to go through study groups for success (I do not like study groups I am sorry). c) If you prefer learning on your own and understanding everything, then this University does not advocate that (connected to b). d) T.A and L.A are of no help or 0 help. e) Online homework is annoying (this is one of the few universities I know that give that).

All four of us siblings graduated from Boulder in the seventies and eighties. One sister went to the law school and did very well as a patent attorney--but she is a scientist as well. Her major was Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology. She is looking at Boulder for her son, now, and we were discussing how lonely and impersonal that very large campus can be. Probably because of that, I sent one of my children to Xavier University, a Jesuit University in Cincinnati, and he did very well there--it is small (about 6,000 students) personal and was set up to address his learning issues. Although he is dyslexic, he majored in Japanese and Asian Studies. He taught English in Japan for a year. He is now working in hotels hoping to be a GM of a large hotel someday. My daughter went to Boston University though she looked at CU and DU. BU is a huge university, but unlike Boulder, Arts and Sciences admits about 6000 students. So she had the big school atmosphere in the exciting city of Boston, but her college was far more personal and accessible than CU. She did very well there. Her degree was in environmental policy and she got a job right away with the Army Corps of Engineers. She worked there for a year, but hated it so much, that she started experimenting with making liquor. Through some contacts she formed, she found a job in a "craft distillery" in NC, and now she makes whiskey all day. Loves it. Makes money. I also graduated from Boulder from MCDB and went to medical school. It was an experience I would not repeat. The third sibling graduated from Electrical Engineering and worked for the FAA until he retired. The fourth would say nothing that I could write down about her Boulder experience-- she was a party animal, flunked out and was angry at all of the remedial work she had to do. Boulder is a beautiful town but downtown Pearl Street looks exactly like it did in 1968 when as high school students we used to sneak up there to be cool. So, if you're the kind of person who is a self-starter, doesn't mind loneliness, is able to join groups or sororities or fraternities in order to be less alone, you'll probably like the "wide open spaces" of Boulder. If you are self-disciplined you will use the excellent academics well. If you are not, you will be sucked into the party circuit and be lost to the world (not a joke).If you have any kind of learning issues--learning disabilities, Boulder is not for you. Try the University of Arizona at Tempe. If you'll need a lot of assistance at first, look at the College of Mt. St. Joe in Cincinnati, It sure isn't Boulder, but it will help you transition to college.

I'm currently considering entering the Architectural Engineering program UC has to offer. Prior to this, I've done some of my studies in Tempe, Arizona at Arizona State University. I plan to transfer my credits once I've received instate tuition and enroll into the Spring of 2016! ASU has great programs as well, however for me, I need something new. I'm hopeful that UC can enhance my college experience.

I actually got my degree here in Environmental Studies a few years back. I ended up taking classes through the engineering department this year and it was then I realized the quality of teaching had drastically fallen. In the fours years I attended, at least in one class each semester, there was a professor that really gave the impression she/he cared about the students. In the engineering department or maybe this is the direction the university has taken, there was not one teacher that really cared about their students. The problem lies with both the professors and the university. The university hires professors based on their research (aka money) each will provide (as more than one professor has explained). Then these people are required to teach classes. So the majority of them do the bare minimum to present the material to students as their research is more important. Thus many "professors" do not have the drive to teach their students. This is incredibly prevalent in the engineering department. It was a bit deceiving at first because the engineering department boasts quite a few accomplished, world renowned researchers, but they are just that, researchers, not professors. I actually passed my courses this semester, but I chose not to pursue a degree at this university. I'm a tad bit surprised at how far the university's standards have fallen since I've graduated. If you don't believe me, check the top 100 universities world wide for each degree offered; the University of Colorado at Boulder fails to make the majority.
