“On behalf of Zayo’s many CU and Leeds’ alumni and our entire organization, we are honored with this special recognition,” said Dan Caruso, chairman and CEO at Zayo. “The University of Colorado is a tremendous asset to our community. Our partnership and collaboration with CU has challenged the university to collaborate, innovate and break down barriers between colleges across campus to ensure students benefit from the highest level of success possible.”
