CU Denver’s Timberley Roane passionately supports Native American/American Indian community

Timberley Roane, Ph.D., is the recipient of the 2020 Chase Faculty Community Service award, recognition that honors her unrelenting support of the Native American/American Indian community in the education of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

An associate professor, Roane has been a faculty member in the Department of Integrative Biology at CU Denver’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for 20 years.

The Chase Faculty Community Service Award is presented annually to a full-time CU faculty member who, in addition to his or her university responsibilities, has, pro bono, provided exceptional educational, humanitarian, civic or other service in the community. An advisory council submits a recommendation to CU President Mark Kennedy, who bestows the honor, which includes a $10,000 grant sponsored by an endowment from JPMorgan Chase through the CU Foundation.

Roane was formally recognized during a reception held virtually on Sept. 25.
