Accessibility

Colorado’s flagship university must be accessible to Coloradans. Relying on students and families to take on excessive debt does a disservice to these same students and families. The University of Colorado must also provide an academic and collegiate experience that allows young men and women from all walks of life to be comfortable attending classes and participating in college activities without fear of reprisal or intimidation.

Accountability

Accountability starts at the top. The University of Colorado Board of Regents are accountable to the people of our state. That accountability passes to the University leadership, to the faculty and onto the students. It is increasingly important that students be accountable to their fellow students. This means respecting differences, entertaining conversation, and calling out bullies where they are. The Regents can set this tone with their voice and their actions. After all, if the school leadership is unable to be accountable to one another and to respect differing views, how can we expect faculty, staff, and students to do the same?

Academics & Athletics

The University of Colorado must be a place where students are able to graduate as well rounded, productive men and women. The University must focus on providing a great education regardless of field.  Students must also be able to develop themselves outside of the academic experience. Whether it is Colorado’s NCAA sanctioned programs, club programs, internships, or student government, the benefit of participating in these activities with fellow students creates stronger graduates and long-term benefits for everyone participating. Our most visible athletic programs — football, men’s and women’s basketball, ski, golf, lacrosse, and cross country — should be resourced in a way that allows these programs to compete at the very highest level. These programs are the very window through which many judge the University and our brand, and they are also major potential revenue generating assets. I will passionately advocate for all these programs as Regent.
