Dear Professor Cronin,

Thank you for your recent email. I am deeply grateful that you’ve shared your concerns about racism and your active involvement in ending it. This is a significant problem not only at CU but across our nation, and any ideas on disrupting these biases and inequities is welcome. We did not receive the attachments you mentioned; I will review them when you’re able to resend. I would be happy to learn your thoughts and ideas on this import issue.

Thank you for your service to CU Denver and its students.


Mark R. Kennedy
