Lynx Strong Embraces Community and Celebrates Success

September 22, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for all of us, testing our strength physically, mentally, and financially. But through hardship, we as Lynx persist. For the past six months, the CU Denver community has adapted and evolved to overcome new obstacles. While the pandemic has lasted longer than many expected, our community continues to find new ways to come together. 

CU Denver is thrilled to relaunch Lynx Strong, an initiative designed to celebrate new ways to build community as we discover new methods to learn and grow. The second wave of the campuswide initiative is an effort to connect our students, faculty, and staff, and to celebrate the safe culture we’ve worked diligently to create. On the Lynx Strong webpage, you’ll find virtual and in-person events, challenges and activities to show your Lynx pride, stories from CU Denver’s people, and ways to get involved with your classmates and colleagues.  

We encourage everyone to visit the Lynx Strong webpage to learn more. Whether you’re learning or working from home, or suiting up in a mask to come to campus, we look forward to finding new ways to connect, celebrate, and share all the ways we are Lynx Strong
