  • In conferring the award to Professor Mejia, the president’s office recognized her “far-reaching and deeply impactful” contributions to the CU community and beyond. Recently, for example, Mejia shared her “Fumble Forward” teachings with a group of Denver 7 employees during a staff “lunch-and-learn” session at the local ABC affiliate’s downtown Denver offices.

    Mejia, a faculty fellow and member of the Renée Crown Wellness Institute’s executive committee and the chancellor’s inaugural scholar of health and wellness, received the award for her leadership in support of the recruitment, retention and development of students, faculty and staff from historically underrepresented groups and community outreach “that inspires collaborative learning across race, culture, language, history and more.”
