CU Denver Chancellor Search Committee

University of Colorado President Bruce Benson invites nominations from the CU Denver community for membership on the CU Denver Chancellor Search Committee.

President Benson will initiate the search late this month. He has asked CU-Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano to chair the search committee. The goal is to have the new chancellor hired by summer. In the meantime, Dr. Jerry Wartgow is serving CU Denver as Chancellor.

The first step in the search process is to appoint a search committee, according to Regent Policy, which states that the Chancellor Search Committee shall consist of at least four faculty members (including one dean), one student, one staff member and one alumnus/a or Colorado resident.

Please feel free to nominate your colleagues or yourself to serve on the committee. Campus governance groups also are being asked to submit names, per Regent Policy.

When nominating, please be sure to include the nominee’s name, position, phone number and e-mail address, and send your nominations to:

All nominations must be received no later than Friday, October 24th.
