President Search


Dear Campus Community,

I am very pleased to announce that the Colorado School of Mines Board of Trustees has appointed Paul C. Johnson as the 17th President of Colorado School of Mines. He will officially assume his duties on July 1, 2015. The full press release with more information is here.

As you know, Dr. Johnson’s finalist status was announced on April 16 and he participated in three campus forums and numerous small group meetings on April 29 and 30. The Trustees invited your feedback and you delivered with insightful and overwhelmingly positive comments in favor of Dr. Johnson’s candidacy. We wholeheartedly agreed and today we took action to appoint Dr. Johnson as President.

The most crucial responsibility any university governing board has is to hire the next president. As we have many times during this search, the Board of Trustees and I want to thank you for your invaluable participation, enthusiasm, and steadfast support over the last six months as we strived to find the next leader of Mines. We look forward to welcoming Dr. Johnson to our campus community this summer.

Jim Spaanstra

Chair, CSM Board of Trustees
