MSU Denver

A message from President Davidson


Feb. 26, 2021


Dear faculty and staff,

I am thrilled to share that Gov. Jared Polis has elevated student-facing higher education professionals to Phase 1B.4 on Colorado’s vaccine prioritization list. This is a critical step in safely getting more MSU Denver students and educators back into classrooms — and is vital in reaching our tri-institutional goal of a full return to on-campus operations for fall 2021. I thank all who participated in advocacy efforts to make this possible.

Vaccinations for student-facing faculty and staff members will begin in late March. More details will be available soon, and Roadrunners can visit for the latest updates from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

I also encourage all faculty and staff to attend the upcoming Fall 2021 Safe Return Employee Town Hall to learn more.
