Elliman noted that in their time on campus, the long-serving faculty members have experienced numerous name changes, a campus consolidation and relocation of the entire campus among other events that have shaped and enhanced CU Anschutz. Elliman lauded how faculty members have maintained their commitment to serving students, patients and the community while enduring major changes.

“You are experts in a vast array of fields—individuals who have had incalculable impacts on your areas of study, improved the lives of countless individuals, and helped to shape the minds of our future generations of national and international leaders in a host of arenas,” Elliman said.

Elliman presented faculty members celebrating 25 years of service with a commencement medal bearing the University of Colorado seal—a token of gratitude for “exemplary service.” A list of those recognized is below.
