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.

Jan. 21, 2016

On Jan. 21 we released the results of two student climate surveys – one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. The two surveys were conducted at the end of 2014, and we are committed to addressing the key findings. Our goal is to ensure all students at CU-Boulder experience a welcoming environment that maximizes their academic performance and prepares them for success after graduation. In the coming months, you should begin to see and hear more discussions about our campus culture and inclusive excellence. Every one of us needs to make a commitment to creating the type of place where everyone can thrive.
