Regents wrap-up: Day 2

Meeting concludes with honors for Bishop, Distinguished Professors

The University of Colorado Board of Regents on Nov. 15 concluded its two-day meeting at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Here’s a wrap-up:

BISHOP SALUTED: To conclude his last meeting as a member of the Board of Regents, Regent Tilman “Tillie” Bishop was honored for his six years of service to the board and many more prior years of service to the state. He and his wife, Pat, above, received tributes from board members and administrators, and Bishop expressed gratitude to his colleagues. “It is not my intent to fold up and walk away. I’m going to be around,” he said. “I will be haunting you with emails, telephone calls and personal visits.” Bishop taught in public schools for seven years and served as an administrator at Mesa State College for 31 years. He also advocated for education during his years in the General Assembly, serving in the House for four years beginning in 1971, and in the Senate from 1975 to 1999.

LAW SCHOOL LOAN REPAYMENT EXPANDED: The board approved the expansion of an existing loan repayment assistance program in the CU Law School. With the help of a $2 million donation, the program will begin helping CU law graduates who work either in underserved rural areas of Colorado or in public service positions. “This is an exciting initiative,” said Chair Michael Carrigan, while Regent Joe Neguse called it “an innovative approach.” The measure was passed unanimously.
