CU Online would like to welcome back Crystal Gasell to the team as the special projects manager! After returning from traveling abroad, Crystal is back with a fresh perspective that will help CU Online continue to advance our mission of helping students succeed from curiosity to career.

In the years since I finished my undergraduate education, I’ve kept in touch with a few of my professors, one of whom had a lasting and particularly powerful impact on my work as an educator.  He taught three of my education courses, and modeled the kind of openness and authenticity I strive for in my own work and teaching.
