Geoff Barsch is the University of Colorado's new assistant vice president for budget and finance.
He will coordinate capital and operating budgets, as well as institutional research. "He brings an enormous amount of experience and expertise," said Kelly Fox, vice president and chief financial officer.
Most recently, Barsch served as budget director at the Colorado School of Mines.
"It's a real privilege to work within higher education because so many bright people are engaged in it," Barsch said.
"They're passionate about what they do. It's very important work in my mind. The state of Colorado and the public in general have a vested interest in how we do what we do."
