Do you know what a CU Regent does for the university? Before the ballots drop on Oct. 17, you may wish to take advantage of these upcoming opportunities to hear from the two candidates for an at-large seat on the CU Board of Regents. At-Large Regents represent the entire state, so every Colorado voter will see these candidates on the 2016 ballot. 

CU Regent At-Large Candidates

Heidi Ganahl, a Republican from Superior, earned her bachelor's degree in business from CU Boulder in 1988. Link to candidate's website.

Alice Madden, a Democrat from Louisville, earned her bachelor's degree in psychology 1981 and law degree from CU Boulder in 1989. Link to candidate's website.

On Friday, Oct. 14, at 12:30 p.m. the Boulder Faculty Assembly and the United Government of Graduate Students are hosting a candidate forum at the Leeds Business School, in room 255 of the Koelbel building.

Candidate Heidi Ganahl cannot appear in-person for this event, but will be providing a video to share information about herself and her platform. The event is open to all members of the CU community, and is not a campaign event – however, the BFA requests that faculty and staff use personal leave to attend.
