Edward Ashwood of CU Anschutz
Edward Ashwood, MD, School of Medicine, Department of Pathology, talks about his research interests at the luncheon. He was appointed Professor with Tenure.

CU Anschutz and CU Denver leadership, faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of 196 colleagues at the annual Promotion and Tenure Luncheon. Promotion and tenure are significant milestones in the careers of university faculty – ones that are the culmination of hard work and a commitment to advancing education.

This year’s luncheon took place on Sept. 22 in the Krugman Conference Hall on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. About 80 people attended the luncheon.

“This room is filled with men and women who have achieved greatness,” said Provost Rod Nairn. “You are providing the nation and the world with its most precious asset: your creativity and your discovery of new knowledge.”

CU Anschutz Chancellor Don Elliman said the awarding of tenure and promotion is not “a given. Just putting in the time is not enough to earn these rewards,” he said. “We have high expectations. We are proud of you and your accomplishments.”

A list of those honored at the luncheon is below. Congratulations to all who achieved promotion and tenure.
