Harber: Presidential selection transparency at the University of Colorado

Yellow Scene: As someone who benefited greatly in many ways from the resources provided by the University of Colorado while I was at Fairview High School and who has had multiple roles related to CU as a parent of a CU student, a past CU fundraiser, I have great affection for the University.

And, as a former member of the governing Board of Trustees for Princeton University and as a current member of the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, I know the single most important responsibility of CU’s governing Board of Regents is the selection of a President to lead an institution with a $5 billion budget covering 75,000 students and 37,000 employees at CU Boulder, UC Denver, UC Colorado Springs, and the Anschutz Campus.

The Regents had promised the community an open and transparent process but appear to be laying the groundwork to name a single “finalist” so they do not have to disclose the names of other applicants.
