New mission statement: making it count

The Regents are not alone in their inability to figure out how many institutions comprise the University of Colorado. That has been an amusing exercise since I've worked here. Why not let the number of chancellors determine the magic number? I count three.

This institutional confusion brings up that expensive branding study. I thought that was supposed to help guide the university in figuring out our identity.

In terms of the university's mission statement, naming a number is not important. But I would suggest changing "high-quality education and professional training" to "the highest-quality."
