Resolution: In Support of the Quality for Colorado Initiative

BFA-R-6-1001

Whereas the faculty of the University of Colorado at Boulder is fully committed to providing high-quality instruction at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and

Whereas the faculty is also dedicated to performing research, scholarly, and creative work of the highest quality; and

Whereas the faculty recognizes the difficult challenges posed by the limited funding available to the University, and the resulting pressure to increase enrollment and to reduce admission standards; therefore let it be

Resolved, that the Boulder Faculty Assembly strongly endorses the Quality for Colorado initiative proposed by Chancellor Byyny, which proposes to further strengthen our flagship campus by raising admission standards, eliminating the linkage between enrollment and funding, and increasing resident tuition to a level typical of our peer institutions. We believe that these steps are necessary to provide the resources needed by the College to successfully pursue excellence in teaching, research, and service; and to further enhance the contributions the College and its faculty make to the citizens of the State of Colorado and the nation.
