Hundreds of members of the University of Colorado community recently gathered for two long-awaited events at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, highlighting its partnership with CU. This was the first year since 2018 that CU presented special alumni and staff appreciation events, which endured an extended hiatus because of the pandemic. The July 20 alumni event was a joint program with the Office of the President, the four campus chancellors and alumni offices. In photo above, from left, CU supporter Jack Thompson, CU first lady Michelle Segal, CU President Todd Saliman, CU supporter Jeanie Thompson and UCCS Chancellor Venkat Reddy were among the guests enjoying the gathering. This event and the July 21 system administration staff appreciation event gave visitors the opportunity to explore exhibits throughout the museum.
