From the Provost: Living the Colorado Creed

Sept. 12, 2016

Colleges and universities often are seen as places to discuss our ideas, debate our differences and openly engage persons with whom we may not agree. Those debates and disagreements appear sharper and less open to compromise during an election season, particularly an election with as much acrimony as the one currently underway. It is during times like these when it becomes incumbent upon us, as members of the CU Boulder community, to remember the Colorado Creed and how we can choose to live its values.Read more »

Chancellor's Corner: University of Colorado Student Government election review

April 28, 2016

The University of Colorado Student Government has issued an opinion that affects the results of the recently conducted student government election. As chancellor, I recognize and fully support the right of the students to elect their own leadership and to administer the processes for those elections. Due to the recent confusion and challenges to the election that have been raised, I will review the processes employed and the decisions made to this point to ensure that they were administered appropriately. I will conduct my review expeditiously in conjunction with the vice chancellor for student affairs and the university’s legal counsel and without any preference to any of the candidates.Read more »
