It was fall, 1992, when I applied to CU Denver’s MS in Accounting program. That was around the 20th Anniversary of our CU Denver. In the summer of 1994, Bob Norden, an adjunct for CU Denver’s Accounting department, was teaching our Accounting Information Systems class and he asked if I wanted to teach an income taxation course for the Community College of Denver (CCD), where Bob was the full-time dean of the Business and Governmental Studies department.
So, in the fall of 1994, I began my teaching career on the Auraria Higher Education Campus. I was a full-time faculty for CCD until spring of 2018, when I became a full-time faculty for CU Denver’s School of Business, after serving as an adjunct faculty for various CU Denver departments since 2006. Having done my degrees at Colorado State University, Colorado School of Mines, and Vanderbilt University, my schooling at CU Denver is really the core of my development into the professional that I am!
Thirty of my 55 years on Earth have been with CU Denver, either as a student, an adjunct faculty, or a full-time faculty. I couldn’t begin to name all the CU Denver teachers, colleagues, and students that shaped me into the person I am today! Here’s to as many more decades I can squeeze out of this life, being a Lynx to my core! —Martin “Marty” Sabo, PhD
