CU regents mum on new president

The Denver Post: The University of Colorado’s governing regents were still engaged in their process of selecting a new president during a closed meeting Thursday and declined to reveal names and demographic information on candidates and five finalists.

Then, in their regularly scheduled public meeting, the regents voted to raise undergraduate tuition by 2% — well below the rate of inflation — for newcomers on CU’s four campuses.

They approved this tuition hike, and 3% raises for faculty and staff, after factoring in Colorado lawmakers’ plan for how much tax money will be devoted to higher education at the state’s public post-secondary schools next year — about $1.03 billion overall, up 11% from $927 million this year.
