President Todd Saliman spent Tuesday meeting with leaders and community members at CU Boulder, the first stop in a series of campus visits across the CU system.
Starting the day with a morning tour of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP), Saliman and members of his leadership team spent the next several hours in discussions related to the CU system strategic plan.
The morning visit highlighted LASP’s expertise in space science research and the institute’s crucial role in educating the next generation of space science professionals.
“We were honored to showcase our unique facilities and introduce President Saliman to some of our 700 employees, all of whom are working to transform human understanding of the cosmos,” said LASP Director Daniel Baker. Read more and see more photos here.
