Colorado State University

Joseph and Juanita Rogers Rites of Passage Fund

Joseph B. Rogers was a leader at Colorado State University, in his community, and in the state of Colorado. As a student, he served as the president of the Congress of Afro-American Students, was an orientation leader, a big brother in the Office of Black Student Services' Big Brother/Big Sister program, and an active member of the Black Business Scholars Association. These are but a few ways that Joe touched lives at CSU. As a sophomore, he was initiated into the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Omicron Tau chapter. His mentorship for and friendships with his Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers made a lasting impact on his peers. In his community, Joe was dedicated to service and often was the leader in marches and demonstrations against social injustices. Joe served Colorado as the youngest lieutenant governor in Colorado history from 1999-2002.

It is because of Joe's commitment to service and relentless work to make the world a better place that his fraternity brothers have chosen to establish the Joseph and Juanita Rogers Rites of Passage fund in the CSU Black/African American Cultural Center. This fund will provide support and encourage students to pursue leadership opportunities and serve their communities.

With your support, we a can ensure that Joe's legacy lives on and help future leaders find their paths and enact change.
