Professor Hildebrand's letter (June 2 issue) complaining that press releases do not replace news, especially when they deal with important matters, should not be ignored. He says "we deserve real...

As a follow-up to last week's letter to the editor noting the delay in health plan rate information, to date, there are no plan documents available online except for Kaiser. Often, these documents go...

I don't understand the rhetoric about budget cuts and the need to increase tuition and fees when CU continues to build building after building. Departments try to use up the money left in their...

In considering self-funded health insurance for the university campuses, I hope that remembering CU's history will play a role. At one time, CU health insurance was self-funded. The savings accrued...

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the article " Career journeys launch at 2010 Match Day " (March 24, 2010, issue). It even made me get tears in my eyes! Truly, we are all employed...

I call on all university administrators to take a 9 percent pay cut to show just how serious the state funding situation is. If the students can pay 9 percent more, on top of years of tuition...

Regarding your PERA article ( Feb. 24 issue ), I object to your headline referring to recent PERA changes as "a rescue plan." This implies a taxpayer bailout and that is not accurate. The restructure...

Like many of my fellow staff members in the CU system, I have been dealing with the huge amount of extra work that has resulted from migration to the new expense system. To give one example of many,...

I always find it disappointing and even appalling when CU publications don't mention that someone they're writing about is an alum of CU. Maybe you didn't know, but Joanne Belknap (Feb. 17 issue)...

I am concerned about CU's fiscal policy and the initiatives that are under way to deal with the crisis. We have read about a number of proposals from the president's office about fiscal flexibility (...

I'm wondering why there are so few letters (many weeks: none) to the editor in the Newsletter. Compared to the Silver and Gold Record, there are very few. I'd be curious to hear from readers as to...

PERA's hat-in-hand shtick is becoming tiresome. Yes, of course we need to fix the funding shortfall. And many, if not all, of PERA's recommendations might constitute a prudent course of action. What...

As we enter the traditional season of giving, I respect the contributions the Colorado Combined Campaign (CCC) makes to our community. United Way, its partner organizations with tight budgets, donors...
