We are proud of our Roadrunners and have several events/awards to honor our outstanding peers.


Roadrunners Who Soar

The Roadrunners Who Soar Awards ceremony, held each spring, is the University’s pinnacle recognition event. It honors employees from across the University for their contributions throughout the academic year, specifically those high-performing employees who positively impact student and employee success and model the University’s CADRE values: Community, Access, Diversity, Respect, Excellence.

Faculty Tenure & Promotion Celebration

Established in 2010 by Vicki L. Golich, Ph.D. (Provost 2009 – 2020), the Faculty Tenure & Promotion Celebration, which is held annually in the Fall, recognizes faculty who have recently achieved promotion and/or tenure at MSU Denver. These faculty members and their families, as well as their colleagues, are invited to an evening of celebration for this achievement.
