Ellen Roberts has been officially confirmed by the Colorado legislature as the newest member of the Board of Trustees for Fort Lewis College (FLC). The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Fort Lewis College appointed by the Governor.

Roberts served in the Colorado legislature for a decade before leaving in 2016. In the legislature, she served in both the House and Senate. Much of her work focused on natural resource issues. Among the groups she served on was the Water Resources Review Committee and the Wildfire Matters Interim Committee. At the end of her tenure, she was Senate President Pro Tempore.

She has been a long-time advocate for Fort Lewis College. When the funding for the construction of FLC’s geosciences, physics and engineering facility was threatened, Roberts worked quickly to ensure the building would be supported. Today the facility, named Sitter Family Hall, is one of the finest research and teaching centers in Colorado.

She earned her undergraduate degree from Cornell University before graduating from the University of Colorado’s School of Law. After leaving the Colorado legislature, she returned to Durango to continue her law and consulting work.

Her term on the Board of Trustees for Fort Lewis College will end on Dec. 31, 2022.
