On April 29, Chris and I presented a session, “Politics and Foreign Policy in the Pandemic,” in which we discussed the impact COVID-19 was having on American politics and foreign policy, for example with China. It was the last in a long series of presentations Chris and I had with friends of the Korbel School and the Crossley Center. Our most memorable forum was on November 9, 2016, the day after the presidential election in front of a stunned audience in Maglione Hall. It was titled, “Election 2016 Fallout: National and International Ramifications,” and I had to quickly rearrange my presentation in light of the surprise win by President Trump. Chris and I then began presenting regular updates on how U.S. politics and foreign policy were changing, our first after one hundred days of the Trump administration and then annually each November. There was much material to cover and ready audiences.

Since 2017, Chris became the director of the Center of Global Engagement, professor of practice, and regular commentator and writer on foreign policy for NBC, MSNBC, CNN, The Hill and mostly recently, Foreign Affairs. Chris has many friends in and around Denver who will miss his presence, but can still appreciate his media commentary.
Good luck Chris and Julie on the next adventure.
