CU Denver Fall Commencement 2023

Page 1



December 16, 2023 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! Sincerely, The Regents of the University of Colorado

December 16, 2023 Congratulations, graduates! Today marks a major milestone in your lives. All of us at the University of Colorado celebrate you and your achievement. You should feel great pride in earning your degree, and positioning yourselves for further success in the future. You’re now part of an extraordinary network of CU alumni making significant contributions to their communities, the state of Colorado, the nation and the world. As a fellow CU alum, I have experienced firsthand the transformative effects of a CU education. I know yours will serve you well, and allow you to serve others. Among the many things you’ve learned during your time with us is the value of hard work, perseverance and selfawareness in achieving your goals. Throughout your educational journey you’ve also undoubtedly benefited from others’ support. I encourage you to pay this forward as you make your way in the world. It will be among the most rewarding things you do in life, for yourself and others. On behalf of the CU community, I wish you success and fulfillment now and in the years to come. Again, congratulations! All the best,

Todd Saliman President, University of Colorado


December 16, 2023 Dear Graduates: Congratulations on earning your University of Colorado Denver degree. On behalf of our faculty and staff, I’m thrilled to be celebrating this achievement with you today. Truly, you have met the moment! Your new CU Denver degree equips you to succeed in your chosen field, and it shows the world that you have the skills and expertise to be a leader or practitioner in any endeavor that lies ahead. Yet you leave our university with so much more than a career-advancing credential. I hope CU Denver has stoked within you the passion and determination to overcome any new milestone you encounter, and that we’ve helped you develop a values foundation to be a voice and a force for good. Your graduation today connects you to a network of 120,000 Lynx alumni, leaders, and innovators across and beyond Colorado with whom you’ll always have common ground, and who have benefited from their time at Colorado’s only public urban research university. Make the most of this network and the opportunities you’ll have throughout your lives to continue learning. If your path brings you back to your alma mater—to continue learning, to mentor students, or to recruit future graduates—we’ll always welcome you back with open arms. No matter what next steps you take in your life’s journey, I can’t wait to see what you’ll achieve from here.

ALMA MATER LYRICS Today we will be singing verses 1, 3, and 5 (as highlighted in GOLD below). VERSE 1 Underneath a canopy of stars tonight The mile high city reaches up to touch the sky Closer to the heavens means we’re closer to our dreams Stone by stone we pave the way for every voice to speak Brick by brick we build a future bright! And mighty like the walls of Tivoli

VERSE 5 Voices ring together now as one in pride With Milo standing guard of who we truly are inside Here we make our mark like branching roots beneath the ground Feel the beat of those before, and carry on their sound Black and gold envelop every cry Auraria we see you

VERSE 2 Mighty like the walls of Tivoli we strive To hold each other up and journey inward side by side Tethered to each other through the beauty and the pain Swaying to the music in communal pride we sing With every voice together we can climb! Higher than the rocky mountainside

CHORUS When the snow is fallin’ (We see you, CU Denver) When the land is callin’ (We see you, CU Denver) When the people need liftin’ (We see you, CU Denver) And their voices need listenin’ (We see you, CU Denver) CLOSING CHORUS Cuando cae la nieve (Te vemos, CU Denver) Y la tierra llama (Te vemos, CU Denver) Cuando el pueblo quiere (Te vemos, CU Denver) Que lo escuchen y eleven (Te vemos, CU Denver)

VERSE 3 Higher than the rocky mountainside we rise And revel in identities that move & intertwine Forging brighter futures with a light upon the past Differences unite and build a partnership that lasts Bring your truth and passion to the fight Auraria we see you CHORUS When the snow is fallin’ (We see you, CU Denver) When the land is callin’ (We see you, CU Denver) When the people need liftin’ (We see you, CU Denver) And voices need listenin’ (We see you, CU Denver) VERSE 4 Cradled by the golden plains and mountain pines Gazing up at stars and out at Denver city lights Different worlds together blend like herbs over the fire Blossom from the ruins ‘neath the Colorado sky Basking in three hundred days of sun Our voices ring together now as one


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.



THE HISTORY _______________________________________________________________________ The University of Colorado Denver is the leading public urban research university in Colorado. CU Denver offers 45 undergraduate degrees, 63 master’s degrees, and 15 doctoral degrees. Programs are tailored to meet the needs of a diverse student population, with special emphasis on assuring professional opportunities after graduation. Classes, serving 14,000 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 (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 _______________________________________________________________________ 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

of education is the base of the staff. The middle of the design, which is the shaft, represents the profile of the Denver skyline and the Auraria campus. 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.

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

THE ACADEMIC REGALIA _______________________________________________________________________ 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,

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 bellshaped 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

Education – White Education Specialists – Blue Engineering – Orange Environmental Design – Brown Fine Arts – Brown Journalism – Crimson Law – Purple Medicine – Green Music – Pink Nursing – Apricot Pharmacy – Olive Public Affairs – Peacock Blue Science – Gold

The Honor Cords Silver and gold honors cords are worn by graduates who are awarded the following honors by their school or college: Summa cum laude (with highest honors) Magna cum laude (with high honors) Cum laude (with honors) Special honors Honors Distinction The gold and royal blue honors cords designate members of the Golden Key National Honor Society. The red and white cords recognize those students who have served through their participation in Student Government. Red, white and blue cords are worn by millitary veterans.

THE UNIVERSITY SEAL _______________________________________________________________________ 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.
