Current board chairman Dick Monfort of Greeley also was reappointed to a four-year term beginning Dec. 31.
Scanlan is president and chief executive officer of The Keystone Center, a Colorado nonprofit focused on collaborative and sustainable solutions to energy, environmental and health issues. She is responsible for the center's overall management and policy work. A former Colorado representative for House District 56, Scanlan previously served as the governor's director of Legislative Affairs and Strategic Initiatives. She earned from Regis University both a bachelor's degree in history and master's degree in nonprofit management. Scanlan replaces Dee St. Cyr, whose four-year term expires Dec. 31.

The UNC graduate, who spent 25 years in the cattle business, is an advocate for higher education. He has been involved with UNC since earning a bachelor's degree in business management in 1976.
UNC's Board of Trustees consists of seven members appointed by the governor, a faculty member elected by peers and a student elected by peers. For more information about the board, visit its website. For more information on Boards and Commissions, click here.
