Gratitude for your dedication during this season of thanks

Nov. 23, 2021

People walking on Auraria campus surrounded by Autumn colored trees.In recognition of the hard work and dedication of our nearly 3,000 faculty and staff members, all Metropolitan State University of Denver offices will close Wednesday at 1 p.m. so that Roadrunners can spend a little extra time with their loved ones.

The University also will be closed Thursday and Friday, and normal operations will resume Monday.

I hope you’ll use the additional time to reflect, relax and rejuvenate, and if you feel so inspired, take a moment to share what you feel thankful for this year. Whether it’s an inspiring student, a helpful colleague or a program success, please share on social media using the #RoadrunnerGratitude hashtag.

Please also remember to keep yourselves and your family members and friends safe this holiday season by doing your part to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

On behalf of the entire senior leadership team, have a happy and restful fall break.
