Dominic Martinez, director for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, said of Allen, “She brings a lot of great communication to the office. The previous associate vice chancellor was more focused on the science aspect, so Allen is more all-inclusive.”
Allen has been in the CU System for more than 20 years and has brought ground-breaking ideas to the table from the beginning. Her book “Difference Matters” is used in many different communication courses.
There were many well-wishers who stopped by to say ‘hello,’ — so many that there was a constant line to speak with Allen the entire time.
“I really feel so blessed to be in this position,” Allen said again and again.
Allen will be overseeing both the Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) on the Auraria campus and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Martinez added, “Allen will bring such a great new perspective to the position. It is really exciting.”
