The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus recently celebrated the generosity of the CU Anschutz benefactor community and the talented faculty they support. Hosted by Chancellor Don Elliman, the event was held for the first time at the Anschutz Health Sciences Building against the backdrop of the endowed chair recognition wall. Each plaque recognizes an endowed chair established by a benefactor or benefactors to support faculty at CU Anschutz.
University of Colorado faculty this year garnered $1.6 billion in sponsored research funding and gifts supporting research, a 9% increase over the previous year and the highest such total in CU history.
On Aug. 18, alumni, friends, faculty and staff gathered on campus for the fifth Loyal Benefactor Celebration. This event honors those who make ongoing annual gifts to support the university, those who have included the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in their estate plans, and faculty and staff who give through payroll deduction. After a two-year hiatus, the return of this special event was met with joy by over 140 attendees.
Fueled by a major investment by the Gates Frontiers Fund, a newly announced Gates Institute on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus will stand ready to transform the frontier of regenerative medicine and cellular and gene therapies in the Rocky Mountain region.
Careers in public health are both critically important and noble. They address systemic inequities, educate the public, increase access to information and care, and develop ways to improve the lives of entire populations.
Chancellor Don Elliman welcomed generous benefactors and community members to a live panel discussion titled “How we are Redefining the Future of Cancer Care with the University of Colorado Cancer Center” on July 23.
