Campus mourns death of internationalization colleague

Associate Vice Provost of Internationalization George Boyd died Sept. 2 at Denver Hospice. He was 72.

Boyd joined DU nearly eight years ago after more than 30 years at Trinity University in San Antonio. At DU, Boyd developed more than 100 Cherrington Global Scholars study-abroad sites. Colleagues remember him as dedicated and extraordinarily conscientious.

The campus community is invited to a celebration of Boyd’s life on Sept. 10, 3–5 p.m., in the International House. Following Boyd’s wishes, no funeral will be held.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the University of Denver Cherrington Global Scholars Fund, 2200 S. Josephine St., Denver, CO 80208. For information, call the Office of Internationalization at 303-871-4902.
