Building Bridges for Rural Colorado

"As an Army veteran and student from Florence Colorado attending CU I used this bridge everyday during my walk to class. It is symbolic to me of the bridge that I intend to build as a CU Regent representing families from rural Colorado. 

I will work to build bridges for rural students who are seeking the opportunity to access higher education at the University of Colorado."  - Alvin Rivera Ph.D.
