Chancellor's Corner: Rejecting hateful speech

Feb. 26, 2016

You may be aware that we had an incident of hateful speech posted as graffiti in a campus bathroom yesterday. Regardless of who wrote these hateful words on the walls of a bathroom stall, we find speech like this reprehensible and demeaning to all members of our community and we completely reject it.

Reviewing salaries for campus’ lower-wage earners, benefits in a competitive market

Jan. 22, 2016

In recent months a debate about wages has begun across the United States. At CU-Boulder, questions have been appropriately raised about our pay structures and the cost of living in our communities. We used these questions as an opportunity to carefully review our pay practices, the market value of work performed and an occasion to increase the total rewards of working at the University of Colorado.

Chancellor's Corner: Climate Survey results and future actions

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.

Chancellor's Corner: Staying unified and supportive in the wake of the Paris attacks

Nov. 18, 2015

As we mourn the loss of life in Paris and conduct outreach it is important that we re-affirm our values as a campus by providing support to the French students studying with us in Boulder, to our American students studying in France, and to the valued members of our Muslim community on campus. I want us to rise to the challenge of this difficult international moment by greeting tragedy with healing and conflict with understanding, and by refusing to inject more rancor and reprisal into the mix.
