Chancellor's Corner: Continuing our efforts to end the 4/20 gathering

I want to take this opportunity to inform you that the CU-Boulder campus will once again be closed to non-affiliates on April 20. We are continuing this approach, begun last year, to ensure that the business of the campus continues without being materially disrupted, and that our teaching, research and academic work and other university operations can proceed.

CUSG advocates for sustainable solution to 4/20 gathering

By Brittini Hernandez, Student Body President

Over the past few months, CU Student Government (CUSG) has been working with administrators to plan for the upcoming 4/20.

To best represent students, CUSG convened a task force of student leaders from areas across campus to work to develop ideas for short-term and long-term plans for 4/20. The conversations we had with administrators and students have been productive and have established long-term working relationships that will serve students in future years.
