Working at CSU

Rosemary Kreston celebrates 30 years of service

April 14, 2010
By Kelly Bleck

Rosemary (Rose) Kreston has an indefinable job, one that she has developed and held for 30 years. As Director of Resources for Disabled Students, Kreston is an administrator, teacher, and an advocate for students.

“It’s not easy to say exactly what I do because I’m in every aspect of the campus,” Kreston said. “I teach a class, Handicapped in Society, that brings awareness about issues and people and I’m an advocate for students.”

Kreston is most proud of how the department has developed, increased awareness and continues to make sure disabilities are not a barrier for anyone.

“When I took the job in 1980 there were 175 students self-identified as having disabilities – now there are over 1,000. It’s a good thing to see that happen,” Kreston said. “Seeing how many more students there are on campus with disabilities tells me a lot about CSU’s capacity to change.”

Celebrate CSU Milestones

Celebrate CSU Milestones! will take place on May 6 in the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom, beginning at 3 p.m. The event is part of Celebrate Colorado State!, a month-long celebration in April to recognize the achievements of the campus community over the past year.
