Dear students, faculty and staff,

We are delighted to share that Ofelia Morales, MBA, has been named Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Operations for the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. We are fortunate to have a leader of Ofelia’s caliber in this essential position, which she officially began on January 16. In this role, Ofelia oversees enrollment operations, working in collaboration with administrative offices across our campus to deliver high-quality services in areas including financial aid, scholarships, enrollment analytics, and academic records and registration.

Ofelia has been a part of the University of Colorado community since 2008 and her career in financial aid has spanned more than 25 years. Most recently, she served as Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Financial Services at CU Boulder, where she oversaw the offices of financial aid, scholarships and bursar. She previously led the Office of Financial Aid at CU Boulder, supporting thousands of current and potential students from diverse backgrounds in their pursuit of a CU education. She led the development and expansion of numerous financial aid programs at CU Boulder and was integral to emergency grant administration for students impacted by COVID-19 and the Marshall Fire.

The first in her family to attend college, Ofelia earned her bachelor’s degree in social work and a Master of Business Administration at Colorado State University Pueblo. It was during her years as a work-study student at CSU Pueblo, then the University of Southern Colorado, that her experience in financial aid began. She went on to hold leadership positions at CSU Pueblo and the New Mexico Higher Education Department before joining CU Boulder.

We are pleased to have Ofelia in this vital role on our campus, and eager for the vast experience and tremendous passion for higher education that she brings to the Office of Academic and Student Affairs.
