Takeda-Tinker transitions to consulting role

Chancellor Tony Frank announced today that Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker will be stepping down from her full-time role as Chief Educational Innovation Officer for the Colorado State University System, effective August 15. Dr. Takeda-Tinker will continue on in a consulting role for the System and will continue to represent the System on the boards of the CSU System Foundation, the Colorado Business Roundtable, and the Lone Tree Arts Center.

Takeda-Tinker, who was just named one of Colorado’s most influential women in business by the Denver Business Journal, served for more than a decade as president of CSU Global before transitioning to the System CEIO role in 2020.

“Becky decided that a consulting role makes more sense for her personally than a full-time position, and we just want to continue to work with her in whatever capacity works best for her and her own life,” CSU System Chancellor Tony Frank said. “She will continue to advise us on key projects as a consultant around gaps in the educational pipeline, and I am confident that she will continue to be a leader for Colorado and CSU in many different ways in the years ahead.”

“I am grateful for the support of the Board of Governors, Chancellor Frank, and the CSU System staff as I transition to serving the CSU System in efficient, cost-effective, and impactful ways as opportunities present themselves to help move our State and residents forward,” Takeda-Tinker said.
