CU Denver Fall Commencement 2022

Page 1


Dear Graduate:

One of the greatest honors for the University of Colorado Board of Regents, the institution’s governing board, is to be part of this commencement ceremony. Your success is a success for us all. Your degree is a measure not only of an accomplishment of dedication and talent, but also notice to the world that you have the skill and discipline to contribute greatly to any endeavor you pursue.

This commencement ceremony, like every University of Colorado graduation since 1935, will close with the reading of the Norlin Charge. As originally expressed by former CU President George Norlin in 1935, graduation “marks your initiation in the fullest sense of the fellowship of the University, as bearers of her torch, as centers of her influence, and as promoters of her spirit.” Welcome to the ranks of CU’s alumni family, which is over 475,000 strong. Congratulations on achieving this milestone. Well done and well earned!

Dear Graduates,

Congratulations and welcome to the University of Colorado alumni family! Reaching this moment in your educational journey required hard work, perseverance and commitment. You should feel great pride in earning your CU degree and for taking this critical step to position yourself for success.

As a fellow CU alum, I’ve experienced the university’s transformative effects firsthand. My CU degree has helped unlock countless benefits for me over the years, and I know your degree will serve you well regardless of your path in life. You’re now part of a distinguished network of CU alumni who are contributing to their communities, the state of Colorado, the nation and the world.

Among the many things you’ve learned during your time at CU is that life is uncertain. That you persisted and earned your degree amid one of the most uncertain periods in recent history is testament to your strength and abilities. Remember this as you make your way in the world. And hold tight to the integrity, collaboration, innovative spirit and critical thinking that framed your CU education. They, too, will serve you well in the years ahead.

All of us at CU celebrate your achievement and wish you health, happiness and fulfillment in the future. Again, congratulations.

All the best,

Dear Graduates:

Congratulations on earning your degree from the University of Colorado Denver! It has been our privilege to be your partner on your educational journey.

Earning a degree is impressive. And achieving this individual milestone during the same academic year that CU Denver celebrates its own milestone—our 50th Anniversary!—reflects how your determination, tenacity, and success will continue to shape our university’s impact long into the future.

Regardless where your journey takes you from here, these traits will serve you well. Our world needs your talents, insights, skills, compassion, and intellect more than ever as it continues to recover from the pandemic and the resulting economic and societal impacts. I know you will rise to the challenge because you’re Lynx. You’ve already demonstrated that you’re more than capable of facing hard truths and then doing the hard work of leading progress.

With your graduation, you are joining a community of more than 110,000 CU Denver alumni, many of whom are leaders in the civic, non-profit, and business sectors—in Colorado and across the globe. Our alumni live in over 100 different countries and are shaping the social, economic, and political landscape of our world.

As you leave today, we hope CU Denver has inspired you to be lifelong learners, innovative problem solvers, and thought leaders in the communities where you choose to live and work. We invite you to stay connected to your alma mater, which promises you a very warm welcome whenever you return.

Natriece Bryant

Natriece Bryant is the Public Private Partnership (P3) Director for the Department of Personnel and Administration. She oversees the development, construction, planning, design, and expansion for State P3 projects that accommodate some of Colorado’s foundational needs. The project(s) scope includes increased affordable housing, broadband expansion, behavioral health capacity, and child care services. The project work is specific to the utilization of the State’s unutilized and underutilized properties to develop, build, finance, operate, and maintain quality-cost effective public projects that provide economic and social value for Colorado.

She has served as the Deputy Chief Customer Officer for the Governor’s Office of Information Technology where she managed planning, and integration of technology strategies for the State of Colorado.

She has served as the Deputy Executive Director for the Colorado Department of Local Affairs where she oversaw budget, finance, communications, accounting, procurement, executive communications, public relations and outreach for the department. She was also in charge of operations for five divisions within the organization that include disaster recovery, housing, local government, board of assessment and appeals and property taxation.

She also served as the States’s designee appointed by former Governor Hickenlooper as the Census 2020 Complete Count Committee Chair for the State of Colorado.

Previously, Natriece served as the Consumer Education and Public Outreach Coordinator for the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), Divisions of Banking and Financial Services. She worked with disadvantaged communities to provide financial education to students, seniors, low income and middle class families as well as served as the statewide representative for financial empowerment and began working to break down barriers when it came to financial inequity.

Natriece began her state governmental career at the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) as the Communications Specialist for the Division of Motor Vehicles in Driver’s License Administration. She educated consumers about legislative changes, fraud activity and new implementation of administrative rules and regulations for the State. She also worked for the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) focusing on marijuana regulation with marijuana businesses to successfully implement a business model in compliance with state law. This included work with law enforcement agencies to ensure all businesses were operating in full compliance and outside of the black market, preventing marijuana from entering the hands of children in Colorado.

Prior to joining the State she served as a Victim Specialist and Program Administrator for elder and domestic violence victims for the Denver City Attorney’s Office. She started the Elder Cohort in Denver which was made up of local District Attorney’s, local law enforcement agencies, non-profit organizations, victim service units and the general public.

Natriece holds a BA in Communications from the University of Colorado; Master of Arts in Sociology and a Master’s in Criminal Justice (MCJ) from the University of Colorado – Denver; and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Regis University.

The Norlin Charge to Graduates

From the baccalaureate address by President George Norlin of the University of Colorado, June 1935.

“You are now certified to the world at large as alumni of the university. She is your kindly mother and you her cherished sons and daughters. This exercise denotes not your severance from her, but your union with her. Commencement does not mean, as many wrongly think, the breaking of ties and the beginning of life apart. Rather it marks your initiation in the fullest sense into the fellowship of the university, as bearers of her torch, as centers of her influence, as promoters of her spirit.

The university is not the campus, not the buildings on the campus, not the faculties, not the students of any one time—not one of these or all of them. The university consists of all who come into and go forth from her halls, who are touched by her influence and who carry on her spirit. Wherever you go, the university goes with you. Wherever you are at work, there is the university at work. What the university purposes to be, what it must always strive to be, is represented on its seal, which is stamped on your diplomas—a lamp in the hands of youth. If its light shines not in you and from you, how great is its darkness! But if it shines in you today, and in the thousands before you, who can measure its power?

with hope and faith, I welcome you into the fellowship. I bid you farewell only in the sense that I pray you may fare well. You go forth, but not from us. We remain, but not severed from you. God go with you and be with you and us.”

For centuries, in academic and ecclesiastical processionals, a mace has been carried by the marshal to symbolize the official opening and closing of a formal event.

The design of the mace encompasses all aspects of education. A globe representing the worldly scope

The pageantry and dress of the academic procession have been inherited from the medieval universities of the eleventh and twelfth centuries where academic life began, first in the church, then in the guilds. The teaching guild was the guild of the Master of Arts. The Bachelor was the apprentice of the Master, and the dress was the outward sign of privilege and responsibility.

Principal features of academic dress are the gown, the cap and the hood. Early in its evolution, it became necessary for universities to set rules to preserve the dignity and meaning of the academic dress. Two English universities, Oxford and Cambridge, are particularly noted for the development of the authentic academic costume, which through the centuries has changed only slightly.

Formal academic attire for American campuses was established in 1895 with the adoption of the Intercollegiate Code, which prescribed the patterns, colors and materials for each part of the regalia for the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. The American Council of Education presented a revised code, which generally governs the style of academic dress today.

The Gown

The flowing gown comes from the twelfth century. While it originally may have been worn as protection against the chill of unheated buildings, today it has become symbolic of the democracy of scholarship,


students, are offered during weekdays, evening hours and on weekends.

The University of Colorado’s Department of Correspondence and Extension was established in Denver in 1912 to meet the needs of a growing population. As course offerings expanded, so did the demand for degree-granting status. The Denver Extension Center was renamed the University of Colorado-Denver Center in 1965, and by 1969, 23 fields of undergraduate study and 11 of graduate study were offered. In 1972, the Colorado General Assembly appropriated funds to build the Auraria Campus, CU Denver’s current site, and renamed the “Center” CU Denver. Two years later, the University of Colorado reorganized into four campuses –Denver, Colorado Springs, Health Sciences Center

At the top of the mace, flames spiral upward representing the colleges and schools, sending her graduates as bearers of the torch into the community and world.


for it covers any dress of rank or social standing underneath. Gowns vary in their trimming and the sleeve design. The doctoral gown has velvet facings down the front and three velvet chevrons on the bell-shaped sleeves. These velvet trimmings may be black or the prescribed color of the academic area. The master’s gown has oblong sleeves, open at the wrist, while the bachelor’s gown has long pointed sleeves; neither has trimming. The bachelor’s gown is always worn closed; master’s and doctoral gowns may be worn open or closed.

The Cap

When Roman law freed the slaves, they won the privilege of wearing a cap. The academic cap is a sign of freedom of scholarship as well as responsibility and dignity. Old poetry records the cap of scholarship as square to symbolize the book. The color of the tassel denotes the discipline. The square black mortarboard is the recommended cap, though some schools have adopted other styles. Doctors may wear a velvet cap with a gold tassel.

The Hood

The hood identifies the level of the degree, the school that granted it and the academic area. The silk lining of the hood is the color or colors of the school. The color of the facing denotes the discipline represented by the degree. Some of the colors you may see represented today are:

Architecture – Blue Violet Arts – White Business – Sapphire Blue Dentistry – Lilac


(Denver) and Boulder. On June 30, 2004, the University of Colorado Board of Regents gave final approval to the consolidation of the University of Colorado at Denver with the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

At CU Denver, faculty members bring their work experiences to the classroom; they are aware of the challenges and advances of the urban environment and are responsive to the needs of students and the community. This combination of talented faculty and a highly motivated student body creates a vital and exciting educational environment. The goal is to offer its students the unique educational opportunity to combine real-world experience with academic excellence.

The mace was designed and created by Michael Brohman, instructor in the College of Arts and Media visual arts department, with special emphasis in sculpture and a CU Denver graduate with a Master’s in Architecture and Planning ’95.

In its history, the University of Colorado has used three different seals. The current seal, adopted in 1908, depicts a male Greek classical figure sitting in front of a pillar and holding a scroll. Next to the figure, laurel branches frame a burning torch. The inscription in Greek reads “Let Your Light Shine.”

The seal’s designer, Henry Read of Denver, chose the classical motif because Greek civilization “stands as the criterion of culture.”

The laurel symbolizes honor or success, the youth suggests the “morning of life” and the scroll represents written language.

From 1893 to 1908, the University seal was a copy of Wyon’s medallion, “Science Trims the Lamp of Life.” In this version, a Greek woman knelt before a lamp, and stalks of mariposa lilies decorated the border. Before 1893, an adaptation of the Colorado

State Seal was used, but it was never adopted by the Board of Regents.

The seal is used primarily on official documents, such as diplomas and transcripts that have been issued on behalf of the University. The Board of Regents uses the seal on its official documents and publications. The seal also appears on the President’s Chain of Office, the University Mace, Regent regalia and various formal publications.
