>>GOOD MORNING. PLEASE BE SEATED. EEG Falcon Demo GOOD MORNING. I’M THE CHANCELLOR I’M PLEASED WE COULD GATHER THIS MORNING EEG Falcon Demo FOR THIS IMPORTANT EVENT. THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING. RESPECTFUL DISCUSSIONS AND EEG Falcon Demo SHARING VIEWPOINTS ARE AT THE HEART OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND ITS WHAT A COLLEGE CAMPUS IS EEG Falcon Demo ALL ABOUT. THIS IS IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY TO EEG Falcon Demo HEAR FROM MARK KENNEDY THE FINALIST FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO PRESIDENT AND ASK HIM EEG Falcon Demo OUR QUESTIONS. HIS FULL RESUME IS ON THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH WEBSITE AT EEG Falcon Demo CU.EDU. BEFORE I BRING OUT MARK AND SUE SHARKEY I WANT TO INTRODUCE EEG Falcon Demo REGENTS WHO ARE IN THE AUDIENCE. OUR REGENT VICE CHAIR JACK KROLL EEG Falcon Demo , REGENT HEIDI TO KNOW. REGENT GLENN GALLEGOS, REGENT LESLIE SMITH AND REGENT LINDA EEG Falcon Demo SHOEMAKER. MARK WILL START BY SPEAKING FOR 5 TO 7 MINUTES ABOUT HIMSELF EEG Falcon Demo AND WHY HE WANTS TO BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO. EEG Falcon Demo OUR CHAIR, SUE SHARKEY IS HERE TO FACILITATE THE QUESTION AND ANSWER PERIOD. EEG Falcon Demo SHE WILL BEGIN BY ASKING A FEW QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED IN ADVANCE FOR EEG Falcon Demo MEMBERS OF OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY. MANY QUESTIONS WERE SUBMITTED EEG Falcon Demo IN ADVANCE AND REGENT SHARKEY WILL BEGIN BY ASKING MARK SOME OF THE TOP QUESTIONS SUBMITTED EEG Falcon Demo AND THEN SHE WILL GO TO YOUR QUESTIONS. THERE WILL BE A STAFF MEMBER EEG Falcon Demo HOLDING A MICROPHONE IN THE AUDIENCE AND THEY WILL MAKE YOU MEET YOU IN THE AISLE SO YOU EEG Falcon Demo CAN ASK YOUR QUESTION. TO MAXIMIZE THE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS MARKET CAN ANSWER, EEG Falcon Demo QUESTION SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO MARK ABOUT HIS QUALIFICATIONS, RATHER THAN TO REGENT SHARKEY EEG Falcon Demo ABOUT THE PROCESS. AFTER TODAY’S OPEN FORUM, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO COMPLETE THE EEG Falcon Demo FEEDBACK FORM ON THE WEBSITE AT CU.EDU. YOUR FEEDBACK IS VITALLY EEG Falcon Demo IMPORTANT AND IT WILL BE PROVIDED DIRECTLY TO THE BOARD OF REGENTS BEFORE IT MAKES ANY EEG Falcon Demo FINAL DECISION. I ASKED THAT WE CONDUCT THIS FORM IN THE SPIRIT OF RESPECT EEG Falcon Demo AND OPEN INQUIRY THAT DOES FINDS US AS A UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY. EEG Falcon Demo NOW I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE REGENT SUE SHARKEY AND MARK KENNEDY. EEG Falcon Demo>>WE ARE GOING TO START OUT THIS MORNING, FIRST OF ALL BY WELCOMING BOTH OUR PRESIDENT EEG Falcon Demo FINALIST MARK KENNEDY BUT MOST OF ALL I WANT TO WELCOME ALL OF YOU HERE TODAY THAT TAKE THE EEG Falcon Demo TIME FROM I KNOW VERY BUSY SCHEDULES TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MARK. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT EEG Falcon Demo PROCESS, AND I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ MORE ABOUT THE PROCESS. AN EMAIL EEG Falcon Demo WENT OUT EARLIER THIS WEEK TO FACULTY, TO STUDENTS, AND TO THE STAFF, EXPLAINING THE EEG Falcon Demo SEARCH FROM THE BEGINNING TO WHERE WE ARE NOW, SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THAT AND EEG Falcon Demo UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT THAT PROCESS. AND LIKE THE CHANCELLOR SAID, I EEG Falcon Demo WILL BE ASKING MARK THREE QUESTIONS AND THOSE QUESTIONS I HAVE NOT SEEN MYSELF AND EEG Falcon Demo NEITHER HAS MARK, SO WE WILL GET STARTED WITH THAT NOW. ALSO, I’M SORRY, I WOULD LIKE EEG Falcon Demo TO GIVE MARK ABOUT 5 TO 7 MINUTES JUST TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HIMSELF AND WHY HE EEG Falcon Demo WOULD LIKE TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO.>>THANK YOU CHAIR SHARKEY. EEG Falcon Demo THANKS EVERYBODY FOR BEING HERE INVOLVED IN THIS VERY IMPORTANT DECISION-MAKING PROCESS. EEG Falcon Demo IT IS MY HONOR TO BE THE REGENTS FINALIST. THIS IS THE FLAGSHIP OF THE CU EEG Falcon Demo SYSTEM BUT I BELIEVE IT’S THE FLAGSHIP OF THE MOUNTAIN WEST AND IT IS AN HONOR FOR ME TO BE EEG Falcon Demo CONSIDERED TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE SYSTEM. I BEGIN MY LIFE PICKING EEG Falcon Demo STRAWBERRIES, WASHING DISHES AT A BAKERY AND PUMPING GAS TO BE THE FIRST BOY IN MY FAMILY TO EEG Falcon Demo GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE. THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT UNLOCKED FOR ME, ANIMATE ME TO BE HERE EEG Falcon Demo IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND OPEN UP MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHERS. I WENT ON TO BE TREASURER OF EEG Falcon Demo MACY’S, U.S. CONGRESSMAN, PRESIDENTIAL TRADE ADVISOR UNDER BOTH BUSH AND OBAMA, AS EEG Falcon Demo WELL AS TEACHING AT JOHNS HOPKINS, LEADING A SCHOOL AT GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY EEG Falcon Demo AND NOW LEADING THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA. NONE OF THAT WOULD’VE HAPPENED EEG Falcon Demo WITHOUT A COLLEGE EDUCATION AND NONE OF THAT WOULD’VE HAPPENED HAD I NOT HAD A STRONG, FIRM, EEG Falcon Demo LIBERAL ARTS BASE OF MY EDUCATION. WHEN YOU LEAD AN ORGANIZATION EEG Falcon Demo AS COMPLEX AS CU SYSTEM, YOU NEED SOMEBODY WITH ACADEMIC, BUSINESS, AND POLITICAL SKILLS. EEG Falcon Demo WHEN I WAS AT PILLSBURY I HELPED THEM BY HCAGEN-DAZS AND SPREAD IT AROUND THE WORLD. EEG Falcon Demo AT MACY’S I WAS PART OF A TEAM AND AN ORGANIZATION AS BIG AS ANY IN COLORADO THAT HELPED EEG Falcon Demo CRAFT THEM TOWARDS A STRATEGY OF BEING THE TOP DEPARTMENT STORE RETAILER IN THE COUNTRY. EEG Falcon Demo WHEN I WENT TO CONGRESS, I WENT FOR MANAGING BUDGETS IN THE TENS OF BILLIONS, TO THE EEG Falcon Demo TRILLIONS AND I ONLY GOT TO CONGRESS BY BUILDING A COALITION BROAD ENOUGH TO EEG Falcon Demo OVERCOME THE ONE IN 100 ODDS OF DEFEATING AN INCUMBENT. I DID THAT BY NOT ONLY REACHING EEG Falcon Demo OUT TO MY OWN PARTY BUT REACHING OUT TO INDEPENDENTS AND THOSE OF THE OTHER PARTY. EEG Falcon Demo IN ACADEMIA, I LEARNED FROM THE BOTTOM UP AND I FOUND THAT TEACHING AT JOHNS HOPKINS MADE EEG Falcon Demo ME A BETTER SCHOOL LEADER AT GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, AND LEADING A SCHOOL AT GEORGE EEG Falcon Demo WASHINGTON MADE ME A BETTER PRESIDENT AT UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA AND I FIRMLY EEG Falcon Demo BELIEVE THAT HAVING LED A SYSTEM WILL ALLOW ME TO BE A MORE EFFECTIVE LEADER OF THE EEG Falcon Demo SYSTEM HERE AT CU. EVEN THOUGH WE FACED A NEAR 30 PERCENT REDUCTION IN STATE EEG Falcon Demo FUNDING AND A TWO DECADE LOCAL CONTROVERSY, I STILL UNIFY THE COMMUNITY TO BE FOCUSED ON AND EEG Falcon Demo ANIMATING STRATEGY THAT INCREASED THE FOR YOUR GRADUATION BY 10 PERCENTAGE EEG Falcon Demo POINTS IN THREE YEARS. THAT SAW HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN INVESTMENT IN OUR EEG Falcon Demo CAMPUS, MUCH OF IT PRIVATELY FUNDED AND TO BE ON A PATH TO HAVE OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISING EEG Falcon Demo YEAR EVER, TO CREATE NEW PROTECTIONS FOR SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY EEG Falcon Demo AND POLITICAL BELIEFS AND TO BE AMONGST THE TOP 25 MOST INNOVATIVE UNIVERSITIES IN THE EEG Falcon Demo NATION ACCORDING TO U.S. NEWS, SO I HAVE A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF UNIFYING COMMUNITIES TOWARD EEG Falcon Demo A COMMON VISION, RESEARCH UNIVERSITIES AND DRIVING THAT INNOVATION. EEG Falcon Demo WHAT DRIVES ME? WHAT DRIVES ME IS THAT MY CENTRAL BELIEF IS THAT LIFE IS EEG Falcon Demo A GAME OF ADDITION, NOT SUBTRACTION, THAT WE ACHIEVE MORE BY COLLABORATING AND EEG Falcon Demo MULTIPLYING OUR EFFORTS RATHER THAN DESCENDING INTO DIVISION. IF YOU LOOK AT MY TRACK RECORD, EEG Falcon Demo BOTH MY BIPARTISAN TRACK RECORD IN CONGRESS AND MY 35 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS AND EEG Falcon Demo ACADEMIA WHERE I HAVE CHECKED MY OWN BELIEFS AT THE DOOR AND CHECKED MY OWN VALUES AT THE EEG Falcon Demo DOOR AND NOT IMPOSE MY BELIEFS ON OTHERS, AND EMBRACED A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH. EEG Falcon Demo ONE THING I WANT TO MAKE CLEAR FROM THE BEGINNING, THAT UNDER MY LEADERSHIP, WE WILL NOT GO EEG Falcon Demo BACKWARDS AS IT RELATES TO THE BENEFITS AND PROTECTIONS FOR OUR DIVERSE COMMUNITIES. EEG Falcon Demo IF YOU LOOK AT MY EXPERIENCE, WHEN I LEFT GW AND IF I LEAVE YOU WENDY, I WILL HAVE LEFT THE EEG Falcon Demo LEADERSHIP MORE DIVERSE AS IT RELATES TO GENDER, RACE, AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION THAN WHEN I EEG Falcon Demo GOT THERE. I AM FULLY COMMITTED TO MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF OUR FACULTY, EEG Falcon Demo STAFF, AND STUDENTS OF THE BROADER COMMUNITY HAVE MY FULL SUPPORT AND MY RESPECT FOR EEG Falcon Demo THEIR DIGNITY, NO MATTER WHO THEY LOVE OR HOW THEY IDENTIFY THEMSELVES. EEG Falcon Demo I HAVE REACHED OUT TO ONE COLORADO TO HAVE THEM BE AN ADVISOR, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE EEG Falcon Demo KEEP CU AT THE LEADERSHIP OF BEING THE MOST EXCLUSIVE SYSTEM, THE MOST INCLUSIVE EEG Falcon Demo CAMPUS. THE MOST INCLUSIVE CAMPUS, THE MOST INCLUSIVE CAMPUS IN ACADEMIA. EEG Falcon Demo WE ALSO NOT ONLY NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE SUPPORTING OUR DIVERSE COMMUNITIES ON CAMPUS EEG Falcon Demo BUT ATTRACTING MORE HERE, BECAUSE IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE FIRST-GENERATION COLLEGE GRAD EEG Falcon Demo THAT I BENEFITED FROM BEING, MOST OF THOSE, MANY OF THOSE ARE IN DIVERSE COMMUNITIES. EEG Falcon Demo WE NEED TO HAVE AN AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TO REACH OUT TO THEM, NOT JUST WITH MAKING SURE THAT EEG Falcon Demo WE GIVE THEM AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN THE PROGRAMS THAT NEED THAT SUPPORT THAT ARE COMING FROM EEG Falcon Demo THE BOTTOMS UP THAT WE HAVE AFFIRMATIVE OUTREACH TO MAKE SURE WE ARE HAVING THE EEG Falcon Demo FINANCIAL AID TO HELP BRING THEM IN AND REACHING OUT IN THE RECRUITING PROCESS TO MAKE SURE EEG Falcon Demo THEY ARE HERE. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM ME? YOU CAN EXPECT FOR ME TO FOCUS EEG Falcon Demo ON THE FOUR PRIORITIES THAT THE REGENTS HAVE SET FORTH. THAT IS FISCAL SUSTAINABILITY, EEG Falcon Demo MUCH OF MY TIME WILL BE SPENT RAISING MONEY, WHETHER THAT BE FROM THE STATE GOVERNMENT, THE EEG Falcon Demo FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, OR DONORS. THE SECOND IS KEEPING THIS AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE, NOT EEG Falcon Demo JUST TO TRADITIONAL COMING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS BUT TO THE SINGLE MOM WANTING, THE EEG Falcon Demo SINGLE MOM WANTING TO ADVANCE HER CAREER OR THE 53-YEAR-OLD LAID-OFF WORKER LOOKING FOR A EEG Falcon Demo NEW PASS, TO MAKE SURE WE ARE FOCUSED ON STUDENT SUCCESS WORKING WITH THE CHANCELLOR AND EEG Falcon Demo THE TEAM TO INCREASE GRADUATION RATES AND FORTH, TO ELEVATE THE IMPACT OF OUR RESEARCH AND EEG Falcon Demo ECONOMIC IMPACT, SO I’M LOOKING TO BRING THE BROADER STATE TOGETHER TO MAKE THE CASE FOR EEG Falcon Demo HIGHER EDUCATION. I WILL BE A CHAMPION OF RESEARCH. EEG Falcon Demo WHEN I WAS YOUNG, OUR GENERATION WAS ENTHUSED BY ONE OF MY LEADERS, JOHN F. KENNEDY EEG Falcon Demo WHO GOT US THE FOCUS TO PUT A MAN ON THE MOON. IF I AM HONORED TO BE AFFIRMED EEG Falcon Demo AS YOUR LEADER, I COMMIT TO WORK IN A COLLABORATIVE FASHION, TO HELP ALL OF OUR EEG Falcon Demo STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR PERSONAL SHOTS WHATEVER THEIR DREAM MIGHT BE AND HELP OUR FACULTY EEG Falcon Demo ADVANCED NEW FRONTIERS TO HELP INCREASE THE IMPACT OF OUR RESEARCH AS WELL AS ELEVATE CU EEG Falcon Demo AMONGST THE WORLD’S GREATEST UNIVERSITIES. THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO EEG Falcon Demo BE HERE TODAY.>>MARK, THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THAT GIVING US A EEG Falcon Demo CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW YOU A LITTLE BIT BETTER. NOW I WANT TO START BY ASKING EEG Falcon Demo THE FIRST OF THE THREE QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED FROM THE UNIVERSITY EEG Falcon Demo COMMUNITY. THE FIRST QUESTION IS THIS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO PROMOTE EEG Falcon Demo AND INCREASE DIVERSITY IN THE PAST, AND WOULD YOU DO THAT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, AND EEG Falcon Demo THEN PLEASE LIST SPECIFIC ACTIONS YOU WOULD TAKE. >>FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU LOOK AT EEG Falcon Demo WHAT I DID IN CONGRESS, I HAD MULTIPLE VOTES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE TREATING OUR EEG Falcon Demo IMMIGRANTS IN A RESPECTFUL WAY, WHETHER THAT BE VOTING AGAINST HAVING HOSPITALS HAVE TO TURN EEG Falcon Demo OVER RECORDS FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS BEFORE THEY PROVIDED CARE, MAKING SURE THAT WE EEG Falcon Demo ALLOWED THEM TO USE MATURE CLICK CARDS FOR MEXICO, MAKING SURE THAT I VOTED TO LOWER EEG Falcon Demo WHATEVER THE PENALTIES WERE FOR BEING IN THE COUNTRY UNDOCUMENTED. EEG Falcon Demo IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE’VE DONE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA, WHEN THE COMMUNITY CAME EEG Falcon Demo TOGETHER TO CREATE A STRATEGIC PLAN, THEY STARTED OFF BY COMING UP WITH CORE VALUES, TWO EEG Falcon Demo OF THOSE CORE VALUES WERE DIVERSITY AND INCLUSIVITY AND THEN WE HAD SEVEN GOALS, ONE OF EEG Falcon Demo THOSE IS DIVERSITY. ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE FOCUSED ON IS TO MAKE SURE THAT EEG Falcon Demo WE NOT ONLY WERE BRINGING IN AS MANY DIVERSE STUDENTS AS WE WERE ANY OTHER POPULATION, BUT EEG Falcon Demo MAKING SURE THAT THEY WERE GRADUATING. ONE OF THE THINGS I GET AS A EEG Falcon Demo REGULAR REPORT EVERY MONTH IS EVERY PERIOD IS HOW ARE WE IMPROVING OUR GRADUATION RATES, EEG Falcon Demo BUT BY EVERY DEMOCRATIC DEMOGRAPHIC CATEGORY THAT IS REPORTED TO MAKE SURE WE ARE EEG Falcon Demo BRINGING THEM UP TOWARD THAT PATH OF GRADUATING. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT DIVERSITY EEG Falcon Demo NEEDS TO BE ONE OF THE SYSTEM GOALS THAT WE SET UP GOALS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE BECOMING EEG Falcon Demo MORE DIVERSE, NOT JUST AS A STUDENT BODY BUT ONE OF THE STRATEGIES WE HAVE FOR STAFF EEG Falcon Demo AND FACULTY? BECAUSE ONE OF THE KEY THINGS I FOCUSED ON IS INCREASING THE EEG Falcon Demo DIVERSITY OF THE LEADERSHIP, BECAUSE THEY NOT ONLY WANT TO HAVE DIVERSE STUDENTS HERE ON EEG Falcon Demo CAMPUS, BUT THEY WANT TO SEE THEMSELVES IN THE LEADERSHIP, SO BRING IN GREATER LEVEL OF EEG Falcon Demo DIVERSITY AT BOTH GW AND YOU WENDY HAS BEEN A KEY FOCUS OF MINE AND I WOULD LOOK FORWARD EEG Falcon Demo TO DOING THE SAME HERE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE LEADERSHIP AT UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA, I EEG Falcon Demo HAVE BROUGHT IN OUR FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEMBER OF OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM AS WELL IS EEG Falcon Demo MAKING SURE WE PROMOTED THOSE IN ASIAN WOMEN AND A MUSLIM MAN TO HIRE RANKS WITHIN ACADEMIA EEG Falcon Demo AND ATTRACTED DEAN’S AND OTHERS FROM A DIVERSE POPULATION.>>TERRIFIC. EEG Falcon Demo TELL US HOW YOU MAKE IT DIFFICULT BUDGET DECISIONS AT UND AND HOW WOULD YOU HANDLE EEG Falcon Demo ANY FUTURE LOSS OF FUNDING AND BUDGET CUTS AT CU? >>THE FIRST THING WE DID WHEN EEG Falcon Demo WE FACED THAT SIGNIFICANT CUT WAS WE LED FROM THE TOP, SO WE TRIMMED THE NUMBER OF OFFICERS, EEG Falcon Demo WE TRIMMED THE BUDGETS AT THE VERY TOP OF THE ADMINISTRATION, THE FIRST THING, AND THEN WE EEG Falcon Demo MADE SURE THAT AS WE WORK THROUGH THAT DIFFICULT PROCESS, THAT WE WERE WORKING AT A EEG Falcon Demo COLLABORATIVE FASHION WITH THE DEANS. PART OF THE REASON WE STARTED EEG Falcon Demo THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS IN MY SECOND MONTH AS PRESIDENT WE HAD A FIVE PERCENT IN YOUR CUT EEG Falcon Demo THAT I WAS FORCED TO DO ACROSS THE BOARD. IF YOU ARE GOING TO REALLY MOVE EEG Falcon Demo INTO THE FUTURE, YOU JUST CAN’T DO ACROSS THE BOARD WHICH IS WHY WE LAUNCH THE STRATEGIC EEG Falcon Demo PLAN SO THAT WHEN WE ARE MAKING DIFFICULT TRADE-OFF DECISIONS AND FOCUSING ON PRIORITIES AND EEG Falcon Demo FOCUSING ON WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO INVEST MOVING FORWARD. THE SECOND THING WE DID IS WE EEG Falcon Demo GOT THE COMMUNITY DEGREE EVEN THOUGH WE WERE TAKING A MASSIVE CUT, THAT WE NEEDED TO INVEST EEG Falcon Demo IN THE FUTURE SO WE CUT $7 MILLION MORE THAN WE WERE REQUIRED TO IN ORDER TO MEET EEG Falcon Demo THE BUDGET CONSTRAINTS OF THE CYCLICAL NATURE OF OUR STATES ECONOMY IMPOSE. EEG Falcon Demo WE INVESTED 3 MILLION OF THAT IN RESEARCH AS SEED MONEY TO GET THE WHEEL ROLLING ON EEG Falcon Demo RESEARCH WHICH HAS LED TO THE IMPROVEMENT IN RESEARCH WE’VE HAD AND WE’VE INVESTED 3 EEG Falcon Demo MILLION MORE IN MARKETING BECAUSE WE WERE REALLY NOT GETTING OUT THERE THE GOOD EEG Falcon Demo THINGS THAT WERE HAPPENING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA, AND TO BRING MORE STUDENTS IN, EEG Falcon Demo AND THE THIRD THING WE INVESTED IN IS TECH ENABLEMENT. FOR GOING TO MAKE SURE WE ARE EEG Falcon Demo DELIVERING A WONDERFUL STUDENT EXPERIENCE AS WELL AS MAKING OUR STAFF AND FACULTY MORE EEG Falcon Demo EFFICIENT, HARNESSING THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY IS ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE GOING TO DO, SO EEG Falcon Demo THOSE ARE THE WAYS THAT WE WORKED OUR WAY THROUGH SIGNIFICANT CUTS. EEG Falcon Demo THE FINAL THING I WOULD SAY IS TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAVING SUCH A BIG IMPACT IS WE HAVE, EEG Falcon Demo OVER THE COURSE OF TIME CREATED A FIVE PERCENT BUDGET RESERVE IN EACH OF THE COLLEGES, AS EEG Falcon Demo WELL IS HAVING A BUDGET RESERVE AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL SO IF THAT EVER COMES AGAIN, WE DON’T EEG Falcon Demo HAVE TO HAVE SUCH A SIGNIFICANT ADJUSTMENT. >>ALL RIGHT. EEG Falcon Demo SO THE THIRD QUESTION, WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU HAVE TO LEAD A LARGE, COMPLEX, ESTEEMED EEG Falcon Demo R ONE UNIVERSITY? >>FIRST OF ALL I HAVE SPENT MUCH OF MY LIFE AT THE SCALE OF EEG Falcon Demo CU. MY BUSINESS CAREER WAS MOST OF IT AT ORGANIZATIONS LARGER AND EEG Falcon Demo PERHAPS, I DON’T KNOW IF ANYTHING IS MORE COMPLEX AND HIGHER EDUCATION, COMPLEX EEG Falcon Demo GOVERNMENT WHEN YOU’RE DEALING WITH THE SCALE OF GOVERNMENT AND VOTING 700 TIMES A YEAR AND EEG Falcon Demo HAVING TO FOCUS ON 700 ISSUES, DOES GIVE YOU THE EXPERIENCE, BUT UND IS ON ITS PATHWAY TO BE EEG Falcon Demo A R 1, WE HAVE THE SAME MEDICAL SCHOOL, LAW SCHOOL, COLLABORATIVE GOVERNANCE SYSTEM EEG Falcon Demo AND I AM COMMITTED TO MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE LETTING YOUR CHANCELLOR LEAVE YOUR CAMPUS. EEG Falcon Demo WE MIGHT BE HAVING SHARED GOALS BUT IT’S GOING TO BE RUN HERE LOCALLY AND WE ALSO HAVE EEG Falcon Demo ATHLETIC TEAMS, DIVISION 1 ATHLETIC TEAMS AND ALL THOSE COMPLEXITIES YOU HAVE AND EEG Falcon Demo HIGHER ED THAT I COME TO THIS TASK WITH THE FAMILIARITY OF.>> NOW THAT WE’VE GOTTEN THOSE EEG Falcon Demo FIRST THREE QUESTIONS ANSWERED, I WOULD OPEN UP THE QUESTIONS TO THE AUDIENCE. EEG Falcon Demo THERE ARE STAFF MEMBERS IN THE AISLES WITH MICROPHONES, AND THEY WILL COME TO YOU IF YOU EEG Falcon Demo RAISE YOUR HAND. SO PLEASE ASSIST THEM, WHEN THEY COME OVER TO YOU, TO JUST EEG Falcon Demo STEP INTO THE AISLE. OKAY, WE WILL START RIGHT HERE. >>GOOD MORNING MR. KENNEDY. EEG Falcon Demo MY NAME IS ELIZABETH VAN. I AM A DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY EEG Falcon Demo AND MY RESEARCH ACTUALLY IS IN THE STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA, SPECIFICALLY I WORK ON THE EEG Falcon Demo NATIVE PEOPLES OF NORTH DAKOTA. IN LIGHT OF THAT, I’D LIKE TO ASK YOU A QUESTION ABOUT YOUR EEG Falcon Demo CV. IT STATES THAT YOU QUOTE MET WITH ALL TRIBAL COLLEGES TO EEG Falcon Demo ESTABLISH 2+ TO FINISH IN FOUR PROGRAMS FOR PRIORITY DEGREES AND I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND EEG Falcon Demo THAT A WELL-PLACED TRAVEL COLLEGE CONTACT, I APPROACHED IN NORTH DAKOTA WAS NOT AWARE EEG Falcon Demo OF THESE MEETINGS AND SPECULATED THAT THE SAME WAS TRUE OF OTHER TRIBAL COLLEGES. EEG Falcon Demo SO, WOULD YOU PLEASE TELL US THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE MET WITH AND APPROXIMATELY EEG Falcon Demo WHEN YOU DID SO? AND, CAN YOU CLARIFY, CAN YOU CLARIFY WHETHER THE SO-CALLED EEG Falcon Demo MEETINGS WERE IN FACT THE MEET AND GREET ENCOUNTERS BUILT INTO THE NEW FACULTY BUS TOUR IN EEG Falcon Demo WHICH YOU PARTICIPATED. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION, EEG Falcon Demo I APPRECIATE IT. MEETING WITH OUR INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS IN MEETING THEIR EEG Falcon Demo NEEDS IS SOMETHING THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME AND I HAVE MET WITH SEVERAL OF THOSE ON OUR EEG Falcon Demo BUS TOUR THAT WE TAKE ACROSS THE STATE TO MEET WITH THE VARIOUS TRIBAL COLLEGES ACROSS EEG Falcon Demo THE STATE. ROSS WILLIAMS I BELIEVE LEADS THE TECHNICAL COLLEGE IN BISMARCK. EEG Falcon Demo WE HAVE ALSO WON IN DEVILS LAKE. WE’VE ALSO MET WITH THE ONE IN EEG Falcon Demo NEWTOWN. I MET WITH THEM ON THOSE BUS TOURS AND I BELIEVE OTHERS BUT EEG Falcon Demo ALSO I’M THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY SO I ALSO EMBRACE THE TRIBAL UNIVERSITIES BY EEG Falcon Demo HAVING MY STAFF REACH OUT TO THEM. THAT THEY ARE GETTING THE EEG Falcon Demo RECRUITING EFFORTS THAT WE CAN TO BRING THEM INTO THE UNIVERSITY. EEG Falcon Demo>>WE HAVE A QUESTION RIGHT HERE. >>GOOD MORNING MR. KENNEDY. EEG Falcon Demo MY NAME IS OLIVIA WITTENBERG, AND JUNIOR HERE STUDYING INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS AND I’M EEG Falcon Demo HERE WITH CU STUDENT GOVERNMENT AND THIS IS OUR QUESTION TO YOU. EEG Falcon Demo HOW DO YOU PLAN TO SUPPORT AN ADVOCATE FOR THE STUDENTS, STAFF, AND FACULTY ON CU’S EEG Falcon Demo CAMPUS THAT MIGHT FEEL UNWELCOME OR MARGINALIZED BY YOUR PREVIOUS LEADERSHIP RECORD? EEG Falcon Demo>>I THINK THE ONLY THING I CAN DO IS TO CONTINUALLY REACH OUT, UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERNS AND EEG Falcon Demo MAKE SURE I’M RESPONSIVE TO THOSE CONCERNS. AS I’VE MENTIONED, REACHING OUT EEG Falcon Demo TO ONE COLORADO IS A FIRST STEP TOWARDS MAKING SURE THAT I HAVE ADVISORS AROUND ME I CAN MAKE EEG Falcon Demo SURE THAT WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN AT THE CU SYSTEM TO ENCOURAGE THE WHOLE EEG Falcon Demo SYSTEM TO BE THE MOST EXCLUSIVE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY . IN THAT, MAKE THE SYSTEM, IF EEG Falcon Demo IT’S NOT ALREADY THE MOST INCLUSIVE SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY , IT SHOULD BE. EEG Falcon Demo>>LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A QUESTION THERE. >>MY NAME IS DELANEY, AND EEG Falcon Demo ANOTHER MEMBER OF CU SG. I DON’T RECALL THE EXACT EVENT OR INTERVIEW THAT IT WAS BUT IN EEG Falcon Demo RESPONSE TO A QUESTION ABOUT SERVING THE NEEDS OF DACA STUDENTS, HE SAID THAT’S NOT A EEG Falcon Demo PROBLEM BECAUSE THERE’S HARDLY ANY DACA STUDENTS AT UND. COLORADO HAS MANY SO HOW ARE EEG Falcon Demo YOU PLANNING ON SPECIFICALLY REACHING OUT TO TALK TO DACA STUDENTS TO SERVE THEM IN EEG Falcon Demo HIGHER EDUCATION?>>MAKING SURE THAT WE EMBRACE NOT JUST DACA STUDENTS BUT EEG Falcon Demo ANYBODY THAT THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IS UNFAIRLY TREATING THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN EEG Falcon Demo WILL BE A PRIORITY OF MINE AND AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, NOT JUST SIGNING LETTERS, BUT SPEAKING EEG Falcon Demo OUT NATIONALLY. I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING IN MY FIRST MONTH OR SO AS YOUR EEG Falcon Demo PRESIDENT, A NATIONAL PUBLICATION THAT I TRY TO REACH OUT NOW A VERY FORCEFUL EEG Falcon Demo ARGUMENT FOR WHY WE AS A NATION NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE ALL EMBRACING MATS AND LOOK EEG Falcon Demo FORWARD TO ADVOCATING AGGRESSIVELY AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL TO MAKE SURE WE SOLVE EEG Falcon Demo THIS IMMIGRATION CRISIS THAT WE HAVE BEEN FACING FOR A LONG TIME , AS WELL AS MAKING SURE THAT EEG Falcon Demo WE ARE IN THE MEANTIME NOT ALLOWING THOSE THAT ARE BEING PENALIZED BY OUR INABILITY TO EEG Falcon Demo ADDRESS IMMIGRATION, THAT WE ARE NOT PENALIZING BUT GIVING THEM THE SUPPORT THAT A HIGHER EEG Falcon Demo EDUCATION THAN THAT CAN PROVIDE TO MAKE THEM BE BENEFICIAL INTO THE FUTURE. EEG Falcon Demo I THINK IT IS A CRISIS TO THE EXTENT THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE SUFFERING BECAUSE THEY EEG Falcon Demo ARE NOT GETTING THE FULL BENEFITS THAT THEY SHOULD BE HAVING IF WE HAD A MORE EEG Falcon Demo COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM.>>MY NAME IS BOB SIEVERS. EEG Falcon Demo I HAVE TAUGHT HERE FOR 44 YEARS. I WAS ELECTED REGENT OF THE UNIVERSITY TWICE, I SERVED 12 EEG Falcon Demo YEARS IN THAT ROLE, ONE OF THE FEW FACULTY MEMBERS THAT HAVE EVER SERVED AS A REGENT. EEG Falcon Demo I HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE HIRING AND SELECTION AND HAVE VOTED FOR SEVEN PRESIDENTS SO EEG Falcon Demo FAR, ALL OF THEM REPUBLICANS. WHAT IS THE QUESTION? I WILL GET TO IT. EEG Falcon Demo I AM CONCERNED ABOUT SEVERAL THINGS, MANY OF THEM ARE RELATED TO PRINCIPLES THAT WE EEG Falcon Demo HAVE TRIED TO ADHERE TO THROUGH THE YEARS. PRINCIPLES OF SHARED EEG Falcon Demo GOVERNANCE, PRINCIPLES OF FREE INQUIRY, WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE RESEARCH THAT WE ARE EEG Falcon Demo CONDUCTING AT THIS CAMPUS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE PERHAPS VOTED AGAINST IN OPPOSING STEM CELL EEG Falcon Demo RESEARCH. WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT WHETHER THIS PROCESS IS GOING TO LEAD EEG Falcon Demo TO CONFLICT BETWEEN THE LEGISLATURE, OUR STATE IS NOW A PURPLE STATE, AND WE’VE HAD 12 EEG Falcon Demo SUCCESSIVE REPUBLICANS AS OUR PRESIDENT AND THE TIME I HAVE BEEN HERE IN 34 YEARS. EEG Falcon Demo THE QUESTION I HAVE IS, GIVEN THAT, AND THE GOVERNOR’S RECENT ENCOURAGEMENT THAT YOU PAY EEG Falcon Demo ATTENTION TO INCLUDING ALL OF US AND THEY DIDN’T MEAN JUST THE REGENTS, THEY MEANT THE EEG Falcon Demo FACULTY AND THE STUDENTS, AND THEY MEANT THE LEGISLATURE WHICH IS GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL EEG Falcon Demo WITH YOU AND YOU WILL WITH THEM , SO MY QUESTION IS, GIVEN ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS AND THE EEG Falcon Demo UNCERTAINTY THAT YOU SEE IN THIS ROOM, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO, IF YOU’RE NOT SELECTED THE EEG Falcon Demo SOLE CANDIDATE, TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE COMPARED WITH OTHER DESERVING CANDIDATES WHO EEG Falcon Demo ARE IN THE POOL, WE KNOW THEM TO BE IN THE POOL, AND MAKE THIS A MORE CONVENTIONAL, EEG Falcon Demo NORMAL, COMPETITIVE PROCESS RATHER THAN ONE THAT IS EXCLUSIVELY PREDETERMINED AND EEG Falcon Demo SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS. >>THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION, EEG Falcon Demo I APPRECIATE IT AND I THINK THERE WERE ABOUT FIVE QUESTIONS AND OR SO I WILL TRY TO ADDRESS EEG Falcon Demo ALL OF THEM. FIRST OF ALL, AS IT RELATES TO THE FIRST QUESTION, I DEFER, I EEG Falcon Demo DEFER THE SELECTION PROCESS WHICH IS THE REGION SELECTION PROCESS TO THE REGENTS. EEG Falcon Demo THAT IS THEIR DECISION, NOT MY DECISION. SECOND OF ALL AS IT RELATES TO EEG Falcon Demo SHARED GOVERNANCE, I HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF REACHING OUT THROUGHOUT MY UNIVERSITY AND A EEG Falcon Demo SHARED GOVERNANCE PROCESS AND THE STRATEGY WAS PUT TOGETHER WITH 900 PEOPLE INVOLVED, SO EEG Falcon Demo MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE FIRMING SHARED GOVERNMENTS IS THAT IS WHAT I’M COMMITTED TO. EEG Falcon Demo THIRD OF ALL AS IT RELATES TO ACADEMIC FREEDOM, THAT IS THE PROVINCE OF COMMITTEES IN THE EEG Falcon Demo UNIVERSITY LEVEL, NOT AT THE SYSTEM LEVEL, AS TO WHAT THEY RESEARCH, HOW THEY RESEARCH IT. EEG Falcon Demo I HAVE A STRONG SUPPORT FOR ACADEMIC FREEDOM. NOTHING THAT I HAVE DONE IN THE EEG Falcon Demo PAST IS GOING TO PREVENT ME FROM AFFIRMING THE ACADEMIC FREEDOM OF WHAT WE RESEARCH AND EEG Falcon Demo HOW WE RESEARCH. FOURTH OF ALL AS IT RELATES TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, UND IS EEG Falcon Demo NOW GREEN ACCORDING TO THE FOUNDATION FOR INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS IN EDUCATION AND EEG Falcon Demo SPEAKING TO PERHAPS THE PERSON YOU ARE REFERRING TO, CAME FORTH, I READ IN THE PAPER ONE EEG Falcon Demo MORNING THAT SUPPOSEDLY WE WERE NOT ALLOWING ONE OF OUR INDIGENOUS PROFESSORS TO HOLD A EEG Falcon Demo CONFERENCE ON DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE WHICH IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL IN THE STATE AND EEG Falcon Demo CONTROVERSIAL WITH MANY OF OUR LEGISLATURES. SO I READ IN THE PAPER THAT EEG Falcon Demo SUPPOSEDLY I KNEW ABOUT THIS WHICH I DIDN’T. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE DEAN EEG Falcon Demo WHO SAID WHAT’S GOING ON HERE AND SHE SAID WE DON’T HAVE FUNDING FOR THIS AND I SAID WE EEG Falcon Demo NEED TO FIND FUNDING AND NOT ONLY DID WE NEED TO HOLD THIS EVENT, BUT I HOSTED THE EEG Falcon Demo PROFESSOR AND ALL OF THE SPEAKERS. I’VE BEEN TO LEGISLATURE THREE TIMES THIS EEG Falcon Demo WEEK. THE GOVERNOR EMPHASIZED TO ME THAT HIS EMPHASIS WAS UNITY ON EEG Falcon Demo THE REGENTS WAS NOT SPEAKING AGAINST ME BUT ENCOURAGEMENT FOR OUR SYSTEM AND BE THE BEST EEG Falcon Demo WE CAN BE. WE NEED TO BE UNIFIED AT THE REGENTS LEVEL, AT THE SYSTEM EEG Falcon Demo LEVEL, AND IN COLLABORATION WITH THE CAMPUS LEVEL. THAT’S WHY I AM ABSOLUTELY EEG Falcon Demo COMMITTED THAT WORKING AS HARD AS I CAN TO BRING THESE, ALL THESE PIECES TOGETHER SO THAT EEG Falcon Demo CU CAN MOVE FORWARD TO ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL IS MY FIRM COMMITMENT. EEG Falcon Demo I DEFER TO THE REGENTS ON THE SELECTION PROCESS.>>HELLO, MY NAME IS DEAN. EEG Falcon Demo I’M A COLORADO NATIVE FIRST- GENERATION STUDENT. I’M A LAW STUDENT AND MY EEG Falcon Demo QUESTION IS ABOUT, THANK YOU. MY QUESTION IS ABOUT COLORADO LAW. COLORADO IS BOTTOM THREE EEG Falcon Demo AND IT’S MOSTLY BECAUSE OF TABOR , THE GALLAGHER AMENDMENT AND AMENDMENT 22. EEG Falcon Demo CAN YOU ANSWER WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THOSE AMENDMENTS AND HOW THEY LEAD TO A COMPLEX BUDGET EEG Falcon Demo SITUATION AND THEN SECOND, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO CAMPAIGN STATEWIDE FOR A TAX EEG Falcon Demo INCREASE, SPECIFICALLY TO ADDRESS HIGHER EDUCATION FUNDING AND REDUCED TUITION? EEG Falcon Demo>>AMONGST MY FIRST MEETINGS WITH THE LEGISLATURES IS TO FREE UP THE SURPLUS THAT IS EEG Falcon Demo MADE AVAILABLE THAT UNDER TABOR IS REQUIRED TO BE DISTRIBUTED. INSTEAD OF DISTRIBUTING THAT EEG Falcon Demo BACK TO TAXPAYERS THAT THAT BE RETAINED TO BE INVESTED ACCORDING TO THEIR FORMULA, ONE EEG Falcon Demo THIRD FOR HIGHER EDUCATION AND I SAID IT SHOULD BE MORE THAN ONE THIRD BECAUSE EVERY TIME EEG Falcon Demo THINGS GET CUT THEY PROTECT K- 12 IN THE PROTECT HEALTHCARE AND WE TAKE THE BRUNT, SO THAT EEG Falcon Demo IS ONE EXAMPLE OF HOW I AM FAMILIAR WITH HOW TABOR IS RESTRICTING OUR ABILITY FOR OUR EEG Falcon Demo STATE GOVERNMENT TO FUND. THE SECOND THING IS, FOR US TO MAKE AN IMPACT, IT CAN’T JUST EEG Falcon Demo BE CU, IT CAN’T JUST BE MARK KENNEDY. I NEED TO BE WILL REACHING OUT EEG Falcon Demo TO CSU TO THE OTHER COLLEGE, THE SMALLER COUPLE COLLEGES, THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES. EEG Falcon Demo I’VE ALREADY MET WITH THE HEAD LOBBYIST FOR THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES, TO THE BUSINESS EEG Falcon Demo PARTNERS THAT WANT MORE TALENT AND WANT MORE DISCOVERY AND HAVE A COALITION BIG ENOUGH TO EEG Falcon Demo PUSH FOR A GREATER INVESTMENT IN DELIVERING THE TALENT AND DISCOVERY THAT THE STATE NEEDS, EEG Falcon Demo SO IF THAT ENDS UP BEING THAT COALITION SAYS THE THINGS WE NEED IS A TAX CUT IN ORDER TO EEG Falcon Demo GET MORE FUNDING FOR EDUCATION, I WILL SUPPORT WHATEVER THAT COALITION DEEMS TO BE THE MOST EEG Falcon Demo IMPORTANT WAY WE SUPPORT GREATER EDUCATION IN THE STATE OF COLORADO. EEG Falcon Demo I’M GOING TO BE AS THE LEADER OF THE LEAD SYSTEM IN THE STATE, THE ONE THAT PULLS TOGETHER TO EEG Falcon Demo HAVE A COALITION. LIFE IS A GAME OF ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION. EEG Falcon Demo WE ARE GOING TO BE MORE POWERFUL IF WE SPEAK AS A BROADER COALITION AS OPPOSED TO EEG Falcon Demo ONE PERSON OR ONE SYSTEM OR ONE CAMPUS.>>MY NAME IS DANA, MY QUESTION EEG Falcon Demo IS CONCERNING YOUR TIME AT UND WHERE THERE WERE MULTIPLE INSTANCES OF STUDENTS EEG Falcon Demo COMMITTING BLACKFACE AND YOU CHOSE NOT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. EEG Falcon Demo I’M WONDERING HOW WE CAN TRUST YOU WILL NOT BE A BYSTANDER OR AN ALLY TO RATES RACISM AND EEG Falcon Demo WHITE THE PREMISES ON THIS CAMPUS?>>DURING MY FIRST WEEK AS EEG Falcon Demo PRESIDENT ON CAMPUS, WE DID HAVE THE SNAPSHOT INCIDENT THAT YOU ARE REFERRING TO. EEG Falcon Demo THAT IMMEDIATELY RESULTED IN A PROTEST ON CAMPUS WHICH THE FIRST THING I DID WAS JOIN THE EEG Falcon Demo PROTEST AND PROTEST AGAINST SUCH A TREATMENT WHICH IS AGAINST OUR CORE VALUES OF INCLUSIVENESS EEG Falcon Demo AND DIVERSITY. SECOND THING I DID WAS I IMMEDIATELY MET WITH STUDENT EEG Falcon Demo LEADERS OF THE GROUP PROTESTING TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE ACTIONS WE COULD TAKE TO HELP EEG Falcon Demo CREATE A MORE INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE STUDENT BODY. THEN, WE DEFERRED THOSE EEG Falcon Demo DECISIONS AS TO WHAT ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE. THE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTION TEAM EEG Falcon Demo THAT DEALS WITH STUDENT INTERVENTIONS. THEY CAME BACK IN THAT GROUP EEG Falcon Demo HAD THREE AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEMBERS, TWO OF THEM FEMALE AFRICA BUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN EEG Falcon Demo MEMBERS, THEY TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO IN ORDER TO PROSECUTE IT AND EEG Falcon Demo UNDER THE FREE SPEECH GROUNDS, OFFENSIVE SPEECH IS OFFENSIVE SPEECH BUT IT IS PROTECTED EEG Falcon Demo UNDER FREE SPEECH SO, CONSISTENT WITH THAT AND WE MOVE FORWARD IN THAT PATH. EEG Falcon Demo>>SO IF THAT HAPPENS HERE, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? >>FIRST OF ALL, IF THAT EEG Falcon Demo HAPPENED HERE I WOULD LET THE CHANCELLOR DO WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. EEG Falcon Demo I CONDEMNED THAT ACTION AND I TOOK THE APPROPRIATE STEPS TO THE COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS EEG Falcon Demo PROCESS TO DO WHAT TYPE OF RESPONSIBLE ACTION WOULD BE DONE AND THOSE ARE CAMPUS LEVEL EEG Falcon Demo THINGS THAT WOULD BE DONE, BUT I BELIEVE THAT THE WAY WE HANDLED THAT WAS CONSISTENT EEG Falcon Demo WITH THE COLLABORATIVE GOVERNMENTS AND FREE-SPEECH STANDARDS THAT UNIVERSITIES ARE EEG Falcon Demo CALLED TO ABIDE BY. I BELIEVE THE STUDENTS DO FEEL THAT WAY BECAUSE WE DID THE EEG Falcon Demo FIRST EVER SURVEY ACROSS THE CAMPUS, DO YOU FEEL INCLUDED, DO YOU FEEL SAFE? EEG Falcon Demo>>TELL ME MORE ABOUT HOW I FEEL.>>THIS WAS A SURVEY THEY DID EEG Falcon Demo WHERE WE HAD TWO OR THREE TIMES THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE PARTICIPATING THAT NORMALLY DO EEG Falcon Demo IN THE SURVEYS AND WE FOUND THAT ALTHOUGH OUR RANKINGS WERE COMPARABLE, WE USE THE SURVEY EEG Falcon Demo TO GUIDE HOW WE COULD BE BETTER. ONE OF THE THINGS THE SURVEY EEG Falcon Demo TOLD US IS THAT WE WEREN’T ALWAYS TEACHING IN A MANNER THAT MADE ALL THE DIVERSE EEG Falcon Demo COMMUNITIES FEEL INCLUDED SO WE CREATED FIVE COURSES FOR OUR PROFESSORS TO HELP THEM EEG Falcon Demo UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE WAYS THEY COULD TEACH IN A MORE INCLUSIVE MANNER. EEG Falcon Demo>>GOOD MORNING, MR. KENNEDY. I’M A PROFESSOR OF GEOLOGY AND IT’S BEEN MY HONOR TO WORK AT EEG Falcon Demo THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO FOR 19 YEARS. I’M ALSO CHAIR OF THE ARTS AND EEG Falcon Demo SCIENCES COUNSEL WHICH REPRESENTS FACULTY IN THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES. EEG Falcon Demo THERE IS AN UNDERCURRENT THAT CONCERNS ME HERE. THE UNDERCURRENT IS THAT FOR EEG Falcon Demo EXAMPLE YOU VIEW IT AS UNFAIR FOR PEOPLE TO CONTINUE TO QUESTION YOUR CONGRESSIONAL EEG Falcon Demo RECORD. THIS IS BEEN AMPLY REPORTED. THE VOTES YOU CAST WERE NOT EEG Falcon Demo YOUTHFUL INDISCRETIONS, THEY WERE ASKED OF A FULL-GROWN MAN, A MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO WAS EEG Falcon Demo ELECTED TO LEAD A NATION AND BASED ON HIS VALUES. EVEN IF YOU HAVE FUNDAMENTALLY EEG Falcon Demo CHANGED YOUR VIEWS, WHAT DOES IT SAY THAT YOU HAVE HAD SUCH VIEWS SO RECENTLY FOR INSTANCE EEG Falcon Demo AS REPORTED WITH THE POLENTA CAMPAIGN IN 2012, THAT MANY OF US FIND ABHORRENT AS AN ADULT EEG Falcon Demo AND YOU EXERCISE THEM IN THE HALLS OF POWER AND THIS CONCERNS ME AND IT CONCERNS EEG Falcon Demo MANY OF US HERE ON THE BOARD. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTION, EEG Falcon Demo AND LET ME ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE CONCERNS OUT THERE AMONGST YOU AND MANY. EEG Falcon Demo WHAT I WOULD SAY IS THAT IF YOU LOOK AT MY TRACK RECORD, NINE YEARS OF TRACK RECORD IN EEG Falcon Demo ACADEMIA, NOT ALONE MY SIX YEARS A TRACK RECORD IN MY TIME IN CONGRESS, WE HAVE EEG Falcon Demo IMPLEMENTED A POLICY FOR PROTECTION AGAINST DISCRIMINATION FOR SEXUAL EEG Falcon Demo ORIENTATION OR GENDER IDENTITY AT UND THAT IS AS STRONG OR STRONGER THAN THEY HAVE HERE AT EEG Falcon Demo COLORADO. WE ALSO HAVE IMPLEMENTED EXPANDED STAFFING TO HELP EEG Falcon Demo ENSURE THAT WE ARE MAKING THE FULL COMMUNITY FEEL INCLUDED AND WE HAVE EXPANDED THE NUMBER EEG Falcon Demo OF SUPPORT SERVICES WHETHER BE AN ALLY PROGRAM, A MENTORING PROGRAM, WELCOMING PROGRAM THAT EEG Falcon Demo I ATTENDANT AND CALLING IN THE OTHER UNIVERSITIES AROUND OUR UNIVERSITY TO PLAY A LEADERSHIP EEG Falcon Demo ROLE, SO THIS IS AN AREA THAT MY TRACK RECORD AND ALSO MAKING THE LEADERSHIP MORE DIVERSE HAS EEG Falcon Demo SHOWN THAT I HAVE A NINE YEAR TRACK RECORD THAT IS STARKLY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU SEE ON EEG Falcon Demo THE VOTING. LET ME JUST TALK ABOUT THIS TRANSFORMATION WHICH IS, HAS EEG Falcon Demo BEEN A JOURNEY AS IT IS FOR MANY. THERE ARE OTHERS THAT HAVE THAT EEG Falcon Demo SAME VIEW, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE FIRST TWO PARAGRAPHS OF MY BOOK, I TELL A STORY ABOUT AS A EEG Falcon Demo CHILD, I TELL A STORY, I TELL A STORY ABOUT AS A CHILD, MY MOTHER WOULD LINE ALL OF US EEG Falcon Demo CHILDREN UP ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR A PHOTO, AND AFTER WE TOOK THE PHOTO, SHE GAVE US EEG Falcon Demo A PIECE AIC T SE PIE AICEVY AD ECOFDVE ERYE A TH PIECE OF ADVI EEG Falcon Demo LOOK FOR THE NEW KID IN CLASS. THE PERSON ON THE EDGE OF THE CLASSROOM, ON THE EDGE OF THE EEG Falcon Demo PLAYGROUND, AND MAKE THEM FIT IN . IT TOOK A WHILE FOR IT TO SINK IN, BUT I REALIZED THAT EEG Falcon Demo WAS NOT WHAT I WAS DOING WITH THOSE VOTES, AND I HAVE BASED ON THAT AND MANY OTHER EEG Falcon Demo EXPERIENCES WITH FRIENDS THAT I HAVE HAVE SHOWN ME THE LOVE AND COMMITMENT BETWEEN SAME GENDER EEG Falcon Demo RELATIONSHIPS IS AS STRONG AS THAT BETWEEN TRADITIONAL MARRIAGES, SO I HAVE HAD EEG Falcon Demo MULTIPLE EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE LED ME TO THE BELIEF THAT WE NEED TO BE STRONG ADVOCATES SO EEG Falcon Demo I APPRECIATE THE QUESTION, THANK YOU.>>WE HAVE A QUESTION OVER EEG Falcon Demo HERE. >>I HAVE A TWO-PART QUESTION, THE FIRST ONE IS ACTUALLY GOES EEG Falcon Demo RIGHT TO YOUR LAST POINT, IN A SENSE THIS IS A CHARACTER QUESTION SO I’M NOT INTERESTED EEG Falcon Demo IN HEARING ABOUT THE WAY IN WHICH YOU DELEGATED RESPONSIBILITY TO PRETTY MUCH EEG Falcon Demo EVERYONE ELSE AROUND YOU. YOU SAID IN YOUR OPENING REMARKS THAT YOU CHECK YOUR EEG Falcon Demo BELIEFS AT THE DOOR, AND YOU SAID THAT YOU SUPPORT THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY HERE AT YOUR CURRENT EEG Falcon Demo CAMPUS AND YOU WOULD HEAR AS WELL. I’M CURIOUS HOW TO RECONCILE EEG Falcon Demo THOSE TWO THINGS, AND IF IT MEANS THAT YOU DO ON SOME LEVEL STILL HOLD THIS CRIMINAL TORY EEG Falcon Demo BELIEFS. I WOULD LIKE YOU TO TELL ME ABOUT YOUR CONVERSION. EEG Falcon Demo I’M VERY SERIOUS. BECAUSE AS MY COLLEAGUE MENTIONED, YOUR RECORD IN EEG Falcon Demo CONGRESS IS ONE THAT YOU DID IN A PUBLIC WAY USING FEDERAL POWER AND YOUR SEAT IN OFFICE, AND I EEG Falcon Demo WOULD LIKE YOU TO TELL ME ABOUT HOW YOU WENT FROM SPENDING THAT CONGRESSIONAL TIME TRYING TO EEG Falcon Demo AMEND THE CONSTITUTION, TO FOREVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES LIKE EEG Falcon Demo MYSELF, MY WIFE, MANY OF OUR FACULTY HERE, STUDENTS, AND STAFF. EEG Falcon Demo PLEASE, PLEASE TELL ME HOW IT IS THAT YOU WENT FROM SEEING FOLKS LIKE ME AS LESS THAN EEG Falcon Demo FULLY HUMAN, NOT JUST NOT REALIZING THAT THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WERE LOVING, BUT EEG Falcon Demo THAT WE WERE IN FACT UNWORTHY OF CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTION, BUT NOW AS YOU SAY, YOU QUOTE EEG Falcon Demo SUPPORT EVERYONE AND I DO HAVE A FOLLOW-UP DEPENDING ON YOUR RESPONSE. EEG Falcon Demo THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION. I BEGAN TO TALK ABOUT THAT EEG Falcon Demo CONVERSION BY TALKING ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE, THOSE VALUES THAT MY MOTHER INSTILLED IN ME EEG Falcon Demo EARLY THAT I DID NOT FULLY MANIFEST IN THE VOTES AS YOU JUST DESCRIBED, AND AS I EEG Falcon Demo REFLECTED ON THAT, I’VE SAID THAT WAS A VOTE THAT I WOULD NOT TAKE TODAY AND LET ME JUST EEG Falcon Demo TELL YOU ABOUT SOME OF THE OTHER EXPERIENCES THOUGH. OUR DAUGHTER, AFTER HAVING GONE EEG Falcon Demo TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, WE BOTH ENDED UP IN WASHINGTON DC AND IN WASHINGTON DC SHE EEG Falcon Demo WOULD OFTENTIMES GATHER HER FRIENDS AND AMONGST HER FRIENDS, A GOOD SHARE OF HER EEG Falcon Demo FRIENDS ARE FROM THE LGBTQ PLUS COMMUNITY AND I GOT TO KNOW A NUMBER OF HER FRIENDS WELL. EEG Falcon Demo THE SECOND THING IS THAT I’VE HAD MULTIPLE FACULTY STAFF, OTHER FRIENDS THAT HAVE SHOWN ME EEG Falcon Demo WHAT YOU ARE JUST SAYING THAT THE LOVE AND THE COMMITMENT BETWEEN SAME GENDER EEG Falcon Demo RELATIONSHIPS AND MARRIAGES CAN BE AS STRONG AS IT IS IN TRADITIONAL MARRIAGES. EEG Falcon Demo THE FOURTH THING THAT I HAVE FOUND IS THAT, AND WE TALKED ABOUT THIS EARLIER IN SOME OF EEG Falcon Demo THE MEETINGS HERE ON CAMPUS. I AM ANIMATED BY GETTING MORE PEOPLE TOWARD GRADUATION ON EEG Falcon Demo WHAT A DEGREE PROVIDES AND I’M INCREASINGLY UNDERSTOOD THAT IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT BEING ABLE EEG Falcon Demo TO PAY THE TUITION, IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT BEING ABLE TO PASS THE CLASSES. EEG Falcon Demo IT’S ABOUT WHETHER YOU FEEL INCLUDED, AND WE NEED TO MAKE ALL COMMUNITIES FEEL INCLUDED, EEG Falcon Demo HAVE THE SUPPORT SYSTEMS AND ORGANIZATIONS TO HELP THEM FEEL INCLUDED. EEG Falcon Demo ALL OF THOSE PUT TOGETHER HAVE CONVERTED ME TO BE A STRONG ADVOCATE AND I HAVE SHOWN THAT, EEG Falcon Demo IF YOU LOOK AT THE WOMAN THAT LEADS THE DIVERSITY PROGRAMS THAT UND HAS SAID WE HAVE MADE EEG Falcon Demo MORE PROGRESS IN HELPING THE COMMUNITY IN THE LAST TWO YEARS THAN THEY DID IN THE LAST EEG Falcon Demo DECADE.>>LET HER ASK.>>WOULD YOU THEN NOW PUBLICLY EEG Falcon Demo APOLOGIZE FOR HAVING CAMPAIGNED AND SPOKEN, AND VOTED TO SHAME, TO DIMINISH THE DIGNITY OF YOUR EEG Falcon Demo FELLOW HUMANS AND TO COMMIT TO PUBLICLY WORKING ALSO OUTSIDE OF YOUR JOB IN FAVOR OF FULL EEG Falcon Demo EQUALITY AND INCLUSION? PARTICULARLY NOW AS WE SEE IN THE SUPREME COURT BILL TO EEG Falcon Demo PERMIT DISCRIMINATING AGAINST EMPLOYEES BASED ON THEIR GENDER EXPRESSIONS, SEXUAL EEG Falcon Demo ORIENTATION, ETC. I WOULD LIKE YOU TO PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE AND TO DENOUNCE THIS EEG Falcon Demo PLATFORM. AND NOT SIMPLY SAY YOU REGRET IT, BECAUSE IT IS NOW EEG Falcon Demo ESSENTIALLY POLITICALLY EXPEDIENT OR BECAUSE YOU MET SOME PEOPLE, BECAUSE THERE ARE EEG Falcon Demo A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THERE ARE A LOT OF TRANSGENDER PEOPLE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GENDER EEG Falcon Demo NONCONFORMING, AND WE HAVE STUDENTS AND FACULTY AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT SEE YOUR EEG Falcon Demo ACTIONS AS THREATENING AND SHAMING.>>I AM PAINED THAT MY ACTIONS EEG Falcon Demo CAUSED OTHER PAINS. I APOLOGIZE THAT MY ACTIONS CAUSED THE PAIN THAT YOU VERY EEG Falcon Demo ELOQUENTLY DESCRIBED. AND I AM, MY REACHING OUT TO ONE COLORADO IS A STEP TOWARDS EEG Falcon Demo UNDERSTANDING HOW I CAN HELP MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE REACHING OUT TO THAT COMMUNITY BUT I EEG Falcon Demo WILL BE REACHING OUT TO OTHER COMMUNITIES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE THE INCLUSIVE CAMPUS IN EEG Falcon Demo CAMP ACADEMIA. THANK YOU.>>HELLO, MR. KENNEDY. EEG Falcon Demo I JUST WANT TO REMIND US ALL THAT IN 2000 AND 2006, LESS THAN 15 YEARS AGO, THESE VOTES EEG Falcon Demo WERE NOT JUST VOTES. YOU COSPONSORED BOTH OF THE BILLS THAT WOULD HAVE CAUSED EEG Falcon Demo OUR CONSTITUTION TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST US, NOT ONLY DID YOU VOTE YES, YOU EEG Falcon Demo COSPONSORED. IF YOUR STRIDENT EFFORTS TO CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMIT OUR EEG Falcon Demo RIGHTS HAD SUCCEEDED, PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF WOULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED FROM MARRYING THE EEG Falcon Demo PERSON WE LOVE LIKELY FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES. CAN YOU DESCRIBE IN DETAIL HOW EEG Falcon Demo THE NATION WOULD BE BETTER OFF TODAY IF YOU HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL? EEG Falcon Demo AND PLEASE BE SPECIFIC AND THINK ABOUT IF YOU HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN THIS LEADING EEG Falcon Demo EFFORT THAT YOU LEAD. THANK YOU.>>WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN EEG Falcon Demo BETTER OFF. LET ME JUST TELL YOU, I DID NOT LEAD THAT ALTHOUGH I’M NOT EEG Falcon Demo DOUBTING THAT I COSPONSORED IT. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING I LED. I LED A BILL TO INVEST MORE EEG Falcon Demo MONEY IN THE HIV AIDS GLOBAL INVESTMENT THAT WE MADE, AND IN THAT I WAS CO-INTRODUCED WITH EEG Falcon Demo RAHM EMANUEL WHILE FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF FOR OBAMA AND UP UNTIL RECENTLY, MAYOR OF CHICAGO. EEG Falcon Demo MY SUPPORT FOR MORE INVESTMENT DURING MY TIME IN CONGRESS FOR HIV-AIDS INVESTMENT WAS JOINED EEG Falcon Demo BY JAY INSLEE, NOW GOVERNOR OF WASHINGTON, AS WELL AS JERRY NADLER, NOW THE HEAD OF THE EEG Falcon Demo JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND THE HOUSE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE CASES WHERE EEG Falcon Demo I LED, THAT IS AN AREA WHERE I LED IN CONGRESS AND WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF HAD WE EEG Falcon Demo PASSED THAT BILL.>>HELLO, MR. KENNEDY. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY. EEG Falcon Demo I’M A CONSERVATIVE STUDENT LEADER ON THIS CAMPUS AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THEY ARE NOT VERY EEG Falcon Demo WELCOMING TO CONSERVATIVES HERE BECAUSE OF OBVIOUSLY WHAT THEY’VE BEEN DOING TO YOU EEG Falcon Demo TODAY, BUT I KNOW YOU HAVE TOUCHED A LITTLE BIT ON THIS ISSUE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW EEG Falcon Demo WHAT THE FIRST AMENDMENT MEANS TO YOU AND HOW YOU WILL IMPLEMENT THAT ON THIS CAMPUS. EEG Falcon Demo>>I THINK THE FIRST AMENDMENT HERE APPLIES IN SEVERAL WAYS BUT MOST SPECIFICALLY IN EEG Falcon Demo FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. SO I THINK THE IDEA THAT WE EMBRACE THE IDEA TO HAVE EEG Falcon Demo DEBATES ON DIFFICULT ISSUES IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO. IF YOU LOOK AT THE FUTURE, EEG Falcon Demo NEARLY ALL OF THE JOBS ARE GOING TO BE JOBS THAT HAVE NOT YET BEEN CREATED SO WHATEVER EEG Falcon Demo SKILLS WE ARE TRAINING STUDENTS FOR TODAY ARE GOING TO BE LESS APPLICABLE THAN THEIR ABILITY EEG Falcon Demo TO THINK CRITICALLY. WE HAVE A DIGITIZATION THAT IS ALLOWING MULTIPLE MEDIA OUTLETS EEG Falcon Demo THAT EVERYBODY CAN HAVE AN EVER NARROW SLICE OF MEDIA THAT REINFORCES THEIR OWN VIEWS AS EEG Falcon Demo OPPOSED TO CHALLENGES THEIR THINKING TO THINK MORE BROADLY. ONE OF THE THINGS I’VE DONE IS EEG Falcon Demo TO START A LECTURE SERIES CALLED THE EYE OF THE HOK LECTURE SERIES THAT GOES BACK EEG Falcon Demo TO MERLIN CONVERTING ARTHUR INTO A HAWK SO HE COULD SEE FLYING ABOVE ALL THESE BORDERS EEG Falcon Demo THAT THEY WERE FROM FIGHTING WARS OVER AND VISIBLE WITH THE BIGGER BROADER PERSPECTIVE. EEG Falcon Demo ONE OF THE THINGS I WOULD DO IS COME TO EACH CAMPUS WITH PEOPLE WAS STARKLY DIFFERENT VIEWS TO EEG Falcon Demo HAVE A CONVERSATION TO HELP EXPAND ALL OF OUR MINDS AS TO HOW WE CAN THINK MORE BROADLY, EEG Falcon Demo EMBRACE CRITICAL THINKING AND BE PREPARED FOR WHATEVER THE FUTURE MIGHT HOLD. EEG Falcon Demo THANK YOU.>>MORNING, MR. KENNEDY. I HOPE YOU FIND BOLDER EEG Falcon Demo BEAUTIFUL AND I HOPE YOU LIKE THE VIEW OF THE ROCKIES FROM CAMPUS. EEG Falcon Demo THE GRAND FORKS HERALD IN NORTH DAKOTA REPORTED THAT YOU MADE $365,000 A YEAR WHILE PRESIDENT EEG Falcon Demo OF UND. HOW MUCH ARE YOU EXPECTING TO MAKE AN COLORADO? EEG Falcon Demo>>I WOULD SUGGEST THAT WE LOOK AT WHAT IT IS. WE DO HAVE A PRESIDENT’S EEG Falcon Demo RESIDENCE WHICH WE VERY MUCH ENJOY, BUT THE COMPENSATION IS NOT WHAT DRIVES ME. EEG Falcon Demo WHAT DRIVES ME IS WHAT IT IS WE CAN DO IN THE TWIN ENGINES OF MY PASSION FOR HIGHER EDUCATION EEG Falcon Demo IS HAVING MORE PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THE UPLIFT OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT PROVIDES THEIR FAMILIES EEG Falcon Demo AND THE COMMUNITIES TO HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE. I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT WE AS EEG Falcon Demo A NATION ARE FALLING BEHIND IN TERMS OF INVESTING IN THE TECHNOLOGIES OF THE FUTURE. AND EEG Falcon Demo THERE’S A PLACE FOR LIBERAL ARTS TO PLAY, INTERNET OF THINGS. EEG Falcon Demo IF WE DON’T ADVANCE THAT RESEARCH, THAT WE ARE GOING TO NOT HAVE THE EDGE OF INNOVATION EEG Falcon Demo THAT STRIVEN OUR PROSPERITY AND SECURITY AND OUR VALUES. WHAT REALLY DRIVES ME IS NOT EEG Falcon Demo THE KIND OF COMPENSATION, BUT DELIVER MORE OPPORTUNITY TO STUDENTS AND TO DRIVE FURTHER EEG Falcon Demo RESEARCH TO KEEP AMERICA AT THE INNOVATIVE EDGE.>>HELLO, MY NAME IS BRENDA HILL EEG Falcon Demo . I’M A SENIOR STUDYING ETHNIC STUDIES AND MY QUESTION IS, YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT BENEFITS AND EEG Falcon Demo SUPPORT ON CAMPUS AND I JUST WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT SUPPORT YOU WOULD GIVE TO MARGINALIZED EEG Falcon Demo STUDENTS ON CAMPUS, WHAT BENEFITS. I’M A LITTLE SUSPECT BECAUSE EEG Falcon Demo YOU KEEP SAYING SUPPORTS AND BENEFITS. I WANT REAL SUPPORT, REAL EEG Falcon Demo BENEFITS FOR STUDENTS OF COLOR. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO IF YOU GET HERE? EEG Falcon Demo I’M A LITTLE SUSPECT IS ON LEAVING THE UNIVERSITY. I JUST WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW EEG Falcon Demo YOU ARE GOING TO SUPPORT OUR CAMPUS, OUR STUDENTS, OUR FACULTY AND WHAT BENEFITS ARE EEG Falcon Demo YOU TALKING ABOUT? BECAUSE I’M LISTENING TO IT AND I’M LIKE, WHAT ARE THEY? EEG Falcon Demo>>THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. WHEN I SPEAK OF BENEFITS AND TALKING ABOUT HEALTHCARE EEG Falcon Demo RETIREMENT BENEFITS THAT ANYBODY MIGHT HAVE. WHEN I’M TALKING ABOUT SUPPORT EEG Falcon Demo AND TALKING ABOUT THE SUPPORT SERVICES THAT I EXPECT THE UNIVERSITY HERE IS PROVIDING TO EEG Falcon Demo EACH OF THOSE COMMUNITIES YOU REFERRED TO, AND WHEN I TALK ABOUT WHAT WE CAN DO FROM A EEG Falcon Demo SYSTEM PERSPECTIVE, I THINK WE COULD FROM A SYSTEMS PERSPECTIVE DEBATE GOALS AND EEG Falcon Demo ASPIRATIONS THAT WE WOULD HOPE THAT EACH LIKE WHAT KIND OF DIVERSITY ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE EEG Falcon Demo AMONGST THE LEADERSHIP. WE HAVE ADVANCED PROGRAMS IN TERMS OF MENTORSHIP ALLY EEG Falcon Demo ORGANIZATIONS, HELPING WITH ACADEMIC ADVANCEMENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA BUT EEG Falcon Demo I AM INTERVIEWING TO BE SYSTEM LEAD. I’M NOT GOING TO REACH INTO EEG Falcon Demo EACH CAMPUS AND TELL THEM WHAT PROGRAMS THEY SHOULD DO.>>WHAT STRUCTURAL SUPPORTS AND EEG Falcon Demo BENEFITS ARE YOU GOING TO USE TO SUPPORT YOUR STUDENTS AND FACULTY? EEG Falcon Demo>>I’M NOT 100 PERCENT SURE I UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION BECAUSE WE HAVE HEALTHCARE AND EEG Falcon Demo RETIREMENT BENEFITS, WE HAVE PROGRAMS AT THE CAMPUS LEVEL THAT I’M SUPPORTIVE OF. EEG Falcon Demo THE OTHER THING IS TO REACH OUT AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE FINANCIAL AID IN OTHER AREAS. EEG Falcon Demo>>WHAT ABOUT THE STUDENTS WITH BLACKFACE? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO SUPPORT EEG Falcon Demo YOUR STUDENTS LIKE THAT? BECAUSE IT IS HAPPENING ON CU’S CAMPUS. EEG Falcon Demo HOW ARE YOU GOING TO COME IN AND HELP STUDENTS BECAUSE THAT IS HAPPENING. EEG Falcon Demo>>WE ARE NOT DOING A SYSTEMWIDE SURVEY OF DO YOU FEEL SAFE, DO YOU FEEL INCLUDED. EEG Falcon Demo TO THOSE EXTENT OF THOSE EEG Falcon Demo SURVEYS, ARE PINPOINTING AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT. I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO LOOKING EEG Falcon Demo WITH CHANCELLORS TO DRIVE FURTHER IMPROVEMENT IN MAKING EVERYBODY FEEL INCLUDED. EEG Falcon Demo>>MR. KENNEDY? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE TODAY. EEG Falcon Demo MY NAME IS ELIZABETH GARFIELD AND I AM A REPRESENTATIVE ON STAFF COUNSEL. EEG Falcon Demo SECRETARY DIVORCE HAS PROPOSED SWEEPING CHANGES TO TITLE IX ENFORCEMENT WITH REGARD TO EEG Falcon Demo SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND ASSAULT ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. CAN YOU TELL US WHICH PROPOSED EEG Falcon Demo PROVISIONS YOU SUPPORT, IF ANY, AND WHICH YOU OPPOSE, IF ANY, AND COULD YOU PLEASE BE EEG Falcon Demo SPECIFIC?>>TO MY UNDERSTANDING, THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DEBATED AND EEG Falcon Demo DISCUSSED AT THE SYSTEM LEVEL AT THE REGENT LEVEL AND NOT A DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION PUT EEG Falcon Demo FORTH, SO I WORK WITH THE REGENTS TO RESPOND TO FEDERAL POLICIES LIKE THAT BUT LET ME EEG Falcon Demo GIVE ONE SPECIFIC EXAMPLE. THAT POLICY WOULD REQUIRE US TO ONLY PROVIDE SUPPORT AND EEG Falcon Demo PROTECTIONS FOR INCIDENTS THAT OCCURRED ON CAMPUS NOT MORE BROADLY. EEG Falcon Demo WE’VE ALREADY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA DECIDED THAT EVEN IF THAT MOVES FORWARD THAT EEG Falcon Demo SAYS WHAT WE HAVE TO DO, NOT WHAT WE CAN DO SO WHEN I SAID WE ARE NOT GOING BACKWARDS IN EEG Falcon Demo TERMS OF PROJECTS PROTECTIONS, I SAID TO THE GREATEST EXTENT THAT WE ARE PERMITTED BY EVER EEG Falcon Demo WHATEVER LAW WE CAN DO MORE THAN THE LAW REQUIRES US TO DO AND WE CAN REACH OUT MORE EEG Falcon Demo BROADLY IN TERMS OF SUPPORT AND PROTECTIONS THAN WHATEVER THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT REQUIRES US EEG Falcon Demo TO DO.>>ONE MORE QUESTION. >>MY NAME IS TUTORIAL, I’M A SOPHOMORE ETHNIC STUDIES MAJOR. EEG Falcon Demo I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN ASKED ABOUT THIS A LOT ALREADY BUT I HAVE SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE EEG Falcon Demo SPECIFIC PERTAINING TO THIS TOPIC. IN YOUR OPEN LETTER YOU STATED EEG Falcon Demo THAT YOU EVOLVED FROM YOUR INTO SAME-SEX MARRIAGE VIEWS AND I WILL GIVE YOU A SMALL HAND TO EEG Falcon Demo THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE DONE AT UND THAT YOU STATED IN YOUR LETTER BUT MY QUESTION IS, AS EEG Falcon Demo PEOPLE, INCLUDING POLITICIANS HAVE BECOME MORE EMPOWERED TO SHARE THEIR RACIST, SEXIST, EEG Falcon Demo HOMOPHOBIC VIEWS OVER THE YEARS, YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER HERE BUT LEADERSHIP IS A LOT MORE THAN EEG Falcon Demo INVOLVING YOURSELF. IT’S ALSO INVOLVING OTHERS SO I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAVE YOU DONE EEG Falcon Demo TO INVOLVE THE POLITICIANS WHO VOTED WITH YOU ON THOSE AMENDMENTS FROM 2001 TO 2007? EEG Falcon Demo>>AGAIN, AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, I WILL BE LOOKING FOR INPUT FROM EEG Falcon Demo PEOPLE LIKE ONE COLORADO TO SAY HOW CAN I PROVIDE MORE OF A LEADERSHIP ROLE ON THIS AND I EEG Falcon Demo WILL LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING THEIR ADVICE AS TO HOW I CAN MORE EFFECTIVELY DO THAT. EEG Falcon Demo I HAVEN’T BEEN A POLITICIAN FOR A LONG TIME. AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE EEG Falcon Demo UNIVERSITY, MY FOCUS HAS BEEN ON WHAT CAN I DO WITH IN MY UNIVERSITY, I HAVE NOT BEEN IN EEG Falcon Demo POLITICS AND I DON’T INTEND TO GO BACK INTO POLITICS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. EEG Falcon Demo>>I WOULD LIKE TO JUST MAKE A COMMENT, WE’VE GONE A FEW MINUTES OVER, WHICH IS FINE, EEG Falcon Demo AND WE HAVE LOTS OF FOLKS WITH LOTS OF QUESTIONS, SO WE HAVE GONE OVER, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO EEG Falcon Demo HAVE SOMEONE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION AND THEN WE WILL BE EEG Falcon Demo WRAPPING THAT UP.>>CLIMATE CHANGE IS EASILY THE MOST DEADLY ISSUE EVER TO FACE EEG Falcon Demo THE HUMAN RACE, OVER 1000 INSTITUTIONS LIKE MUNICIPALITIES, CHURCHES, AND EEG Falcon Demo UNIVERSITIES HAVE NOW DIVESTED OUT OF FOSSIL FUELS AND INVESTED IN RENEWABLE ENERGY. EEG Falcon Demo RENEWABLE ENERGY STOCKS OUTPERFORM GAS STOCKS BY 2 TO 1. THEY ARE INCREASING IN VALUE EEG Falcon Demo WHILE OIL AND GAS IS DECREASING. YOU SAID THIS WEEK THAT YOU EEG Falcon Demo BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE, AND FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, BUT YOU’VE ALSO SAID YOU DO NOT EEG Falcon Demo SUPPORT DIVESTING. WILL YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS CONTRADICTION? EEG Falcon Demo>>IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY THAT WE ARE REQUIRED TO INVEST AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, WE EEG Falcon Demo ARE NOT ALLOWED TO INVEST IN ANY INDIVIDUAL STOCKS. WE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO INVEST EEG Falcon Demo IN MUTUAL FUNDS OR OTHER AMALGAMATIONS. THERE ARE VERY FEW THAT HAVE NO EEG Falcon Demo ENERGY INVESTMENTS IN THEM, BUT THERE ARE THOSE THAT DO INVEST MORE IN RENEWABLES, SO I AM EEG Falcon Demo GOING TO WORK WITH THE INVESTMENT COMMITTEES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE TRYING TO EEG Falcon Demo SOLVE THE DUAL GOAL OF MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE INVESTING IN THE MOST SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE EEG Falcon Demo WAY WE CAN TO ADVANCE THE CONCERNS AND THE ACTIONS TOWARDS ADDRESSING CLIMATE EEG Falcon Demo CHANGE WHILE MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE FULFILLING OUR FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE THE EEG Falcon Demo BEST, SAFEST INVESTMENTS FOR THE UNIVERSITY SO THAT WOULD BE MY COMMITMENT TO YOU. EEG Falcon Demo REFERS WILL SAY TAKE YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXCHANGE IDEAS. EEG Falcon Demo I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO COMING BACK IN THE FUTURE AND ENGAGING WITH YOU MORE FULLY. EEG Falcon Demo THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.>>THAT’S IT.>>THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING HERE. EEG Falcon Demo I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU TO COMPLETE THE FEEDBACK FORM AT CU.EDU. EEG Falcon Demo THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE MARK, THANK YOU.
