CU Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano announces retirement

Chancellor Phil DiStefano announced his retirement on Tuesday after nearly 15 years at the helm of the University of Colorado Boulder.

DiStefano plans to return as a faculty member to the School of Education, where he first began his CU Boulder career in 1974.

He announced his retirement during his State of the Campus address Tuesday morning.

“It has been such a rewarding and humbling experience to serve as chancellor of Colorado’s flagship university for the past 15 years,” DiStefano said. “I am so proud of our faculty, staff and students and all that you have accomplished, and I also will treasure the many alumni, donors, parents and friends of the university I was lucky enough to meet.”

DiStefano is expected to rejoin the School of Education in the fall of 2024 to serve as the senior executive director at the Center for Leadership. He will also support the transition of CU Boulder’s next chancellor.

CU System President Todd Saliman will lead a national search for a new chancellor and will share more information on the search process in the coming weeks.
