Colorado State University President Tony Frank will deliver the annual President’s Fall Address on Wednesday, Sept. 4, on the University’s historic Oval. He will address new ways to create an exceptional and supportive work environment for CSU’s adjunct faculty as well as a new initiative striving to make CSU the best place for women to work and learn.


The university community is invited to gather at the Oval at 11:15 a.m. with the Colorado State Marching Band. Frank will begin his comments at 11:30 a.m. from the south end of the Oval.


Immediately following the address will be the annual University Picnic, celebrating and promoting the spirit of Colorado State.

The University Picnic was first held in September 1997 as a thank-you to the university community for pulling together in the aftermath of the devastating Spring Creek Flood. The event has been a University tradition ever since.
