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.

What a great picture!

Aside: does anyone know if any of those saplings are the ones around the building today?

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.”

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.

Famous for its lack of parking and draconian crackdown on 420 gatherings, the University of Colorado is a perpetual middle top tier denizen in the Playboy rankings, which is more than I can say for its academic ranking. Though there are occasional pockets of excellence, the corporatization of this once noble University has rendered it bland and toothless. Maybe someday they will drop football and get serious about academic excellence, but the tail continues to wag the dog at CU.

This only pertains to a single aspect of disability services: access to a powered cart. Recently, I suffered a collapsed lung which required a chest tube, an unpleasant experience. Exacerbating this via walking can cause a recollapse and thus, another procedure. As I need to finish my final exams, walking to and from class is required. When I tried to contact Wardenberg they sent me to disability services, when I called disability services they sent me to dean of students, when I called the dean of students I was told that there is no available kart for students needing one. The representative stated that she too has been upset for a while that such a service does not exist for students in need. Gardeners have karts, and I have seen non-gardener karts on campus which I presume belong to sports related departments on campus, so why can't this university buy a single kart for disability services? Not only that, but despite demand from students AND CU Boulder representatives, no one is willing to make a change.

I am sick and tired of the school prioritizing sports over academics. So many academic buildings are built way off campus while the sports complexes are being built in center campus. Honestly, if their sports teams were good I would be more willing to have a 35 minute plus walk to class. Sadly, the sports teams absolutely suck, which means I am walking that extra distance to east campus for absolutely nothing!

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.

I think this school is a terrible, terrible place. Bonnie, my friend, went to this school, and absolutely HATED it, all she did was call me day and night complaining, "WAHHHH" she'd say "I hate this school!"

I spent eight years after my undergraduate degree being an elementary art teacher and hating it, but slowly working on my paintings so I could apply to graduate school. During my interview for CU, I was asked questions about my paintings I had never heard before, questions I couldn’t answer. As hard as it was having the rug pulled out beneath me, the interview felt strangely cathartic, I knew CU was where I wanted to study so I could one day answer those questions I couldn’t at my interview. I believed graduate school would help me find a deeper understanding of the world, my own art and a place that would give me the skills to start my art career. I have no idea if going to graduate school was a good idea. Graduate school has been the most humbling experience of my life. It didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. Now that I’m about to graduate, I feel I finally have the skills to apply to graduate school. After a particularly bad day at school I was reminded of the movie Gaslight, about a woman whose husband makes her believe she was crazy when she saw a gaslight becoming dim. When people asked me what graduate school was like, I would say, “Gas Lighting”. I often felt as though I was going crazy but there is something crazy about making art. I truly believe humans need other humans to grow and those who resist change get stuck. It seems the students that embrace humility get the most out of their time at school or perhaps that’s just what I want to believe. I forget all too often to do what makes me happy and make art that was important to me. When asked what I learned in graduate school I say “I learned where the bar is in the art world”. Meaning what makes art spectacular enough to be special. I have the ability to see the bar now, but have no idea how to get near it.

Really beautiful campus. Open to walk around and see it for yourself at your own pace. Stadium has a wonderful view, and the grounds/facilities are well kept.
