Neil Krauss has been named director of administration for the Anschutz Medical Campus.

In the new role, Krauss will represent Executive Vice Chancellor Lilly Marks in a variety of matters, and oversee campus projects and initiatives, serving on committees and responding to internal and external concerns and constituents.

Krauss returns to the medical campus with a blend of professional skills that combine communication, management, analytical and financial expertise.

For more than 10 years, he was a recognized leader at DU who excelled in relationship building, facilitating problem solving, providing analytical support to senior-level staff and creating and implementing process structures to improve operational efficiencies.

Before working at DU, Krauss served as a planner at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center with the initial Institutional Planning team during the early stages of the creation of the Anschutz Medical Campus in 1999-2000. Previously, he worked for the CU President's Office as assistant to the vice president for business and finance, and served as a policy analyst for the Legislative Council at the Colorado Legislature, focusing on higher education and K-12 education policy.

Krauss has two master's degrees (finance and international studies) from DU and a bachelor's degree in journalism from Missouri. In a previous career, he was an award-winning reporter and daily newspaper editor.
