President Tony Frank is the fourth Colorado State University faculty or staff member to be named Citizen of the West. John Matsushima, emeritus professor of animal science, was honored in 2013; Albert C. Yates, 12th president of CSU, was recognized in 2002; and Fum McGraw, the late CSU football legend and former athletics director, was honored with his wife, Brownie, in 1997.

As president of Colorado State University, I’m pleased to host this site to provide quick access to information on University structure, vision, challenges, and direction (and an occasional wistful message about the Chicago Cubs). Our CSU mission is straightforward: We provide an outstanding, competitive education; conduct important research that can improve the quality of life for people worldwide; and help meet the practical, informational, and economic needs of Colorado through an unparalleled commitment to outreach. I’m proud to be part of this extraordinary campus community. Go Rams!
