The Board of Regents appreciates Mark Kennedy’s service and dedication to the University of Colorado. The transition agreement we approved today meets our contractual obligation to him, which is the right thing to do. The board and President Kennedy share the common goal of what is best for the university.
Selecting a president is one of the most important functions the Board of Regents performs, so the board will proceed deliberately but expediently to meet our imperative. We will select an interim president soon, refine our search policies as necessary and proceed with a search. As we move forward, the board is committed to transparency and effective communications with the university community and constituents. We have every confidence that we will find a leader who will ensure that CU continues to meet its mission and serves our students and our state.
