In light of two federal announcements this week involving Title IX and sexual assault issues on U.S. college campuses, I want to update you on what CU-Boulder is doing to make progress on Title IX issues and why we want to be a leader among the nation’s universities in creating a safe learning environment for women.
Last fall, The Board of Regents asked each University of Colorado campus to develop a process for prioritizing its academic and administrative areas. Since that time, the University of Colorado Boulder has been working in earnest to engage students, faculty and staff in a process of objective and evidence-based decision making. This initiative, while challenging in many ways, is a real opportunity for CU-Boulder to further develop quantitative data to inform our decisions and help us better serve our students and the state of Colorado. We wanted to share our thoughts with you about this process and our next steps.
