Assault Survivors Advocacy Program Celebrates 30 Years of Providing Support
When tackling college applications, Imani Lindberg, ’20, wasn’t sure what she wanted out of a university. As a first-generation student who is Black and queer, there wasn’t a path carved out by previous family members to follow. After sending out applications, Lindberg was accepted to UNC and chose to enroll. Fast forward to September of 2022, Lindberg earned her master's of Public Administration a few months earlier and was moving back to Greeley with her partner, a fellow UNC alumna, to become the assistant director of Advocacy Services at UNC. She would now oversee the very program that she promised herself she would get involved with years earlier.

Alumni Employees Spotlight Their Favorite Campus Traditions
Every university has its own unique set of traditions and legacies that students will remember when they graduate, but those memories can be different for everyone — a unique combination of the friends, student groups and programs each student associated with that is authentic to their particular experience. This is certainly the case at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) where students who march in the Pride of the Rockies might remember their time on campus differently compared to a student pursuing their doctorate.
