Board Names Frank President of Colorado State University , June 24, 2009
A message from the Board of Governors of the Colorado State University System
Dear CSU Community Member:
The Colorado State University System Board of Governors is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Anthony Frank as the 14th president of CSU Fort Collins, effective July 1, 2009.
As you may know, the board named Tony interim president in November 2008. He has clearly demonstrated his leadership ability during the last eight months. Tony has had the serious challenge of making significant budget cuts and addressing shortfalls, while keeping the integrity of CSU’s academics and research intact. He has bolstered strong relationships with the City of Fort Collins, Larimer County and our elected officials serving northern Colorado. Tony has started making inroads to reach out to the university’s Extension offices throughout Colorado to ensure we are serving our communities with the appropriate resources, and to reinvigorate our service,education and research missions within the agricultural community.
The board is confident Tony will continue to build on the universal respect he has around the state to promote and advance the Fort Collins campus. He has done an impressive job during some challenging times. His open and approachable demeanor is welcome, and students and faculty feel comfortable working with him, knowing he will represent them and their interests.
CSU Fort Collins is in capable hands with Tony at the helm.
Please join us in congratulating Tony Frank.
CSU System Board of Governors
