Responsibility of the Student Government at large is to be the intermediary between the students and both the academic and administrative community at CU Boulder College of Music. As the elected representation of, by, and for the students of CU Boulder College of Music, we will be the leading force that reflects the collective voice of the student body while promoting diversity of expression both musically and culturally.

Read the CMSG Constitution.

What exactly does the Student Government do?

Takes questions and grievances from students, and works with administration to get those questions answered or grievances remedied by:

  • Using every available opportunity to solicit information from any and all CU music students
  • Holding monthly general body meetings to talk about the issues impacting CU music students and creating strategies to get those issues to administrators who can work in concert to remedy them
  • Being a group that is frequently tapped to sit on campus committees to represent the student perspective
  • Taking each semester's hot topics and coordinating one or two CMSG Town Hall roundtable discussions with appropriate administrators to work through challenges
  • Coordinating a few small events each semester so that everyone knows about CU Boulder CMSG

Fall 2013 CMSG Executive Committee


Courtney Pomeroy


Hansen Millison

Join the CMSG Council!

While all CU music students are welcome to attend and lend their voice to all CMSG meetings and events, there are leadership positions available too. Positions are EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer) and REPRESENTATIVES for instrumental departments and majors. The EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE together with the REPRESENTATIVES comprise the COUNCIL. The GENERAL BODY is comprised of the COUNCIL and the greater CU community.

Once per year, elections will will be held for Executive Committee members. New Executive Committee Members will be chosen by the student body via ballot.

As Representative positions become available, solicitation for nominations will be sent and vacancies will be filled by appointment. Where there is no opposition the appointment will be made. When there is opposition a vote will take place at a General Body Meeting to determine the appointment.

How do you run for the Executive Committee?

See our facebook page for upcomming election information.

How do you become a fall 2013 Representative?

  • Step 1: At any time (not just during fall Executive Committee elections) review the list of open CMSG Representative positions.  
  • Step 2: Submit your name or nominate a friend.
  • Step 3: If multiple students are interested, you will be asked to give a brief introduction and statement of interest at a General Body Meeting where secret ballot elections will take place to determine the appointment.
