The newest installment of higher education efficiency legislation was signed into law last month and will take effect Aug. 10. But the implementation of changes throughout the University of Colorado will be a process unfolding over the next several weeks.
A sequel of sorts to last year's Senate Bill 3, House Bill 11-1301 became official when Gov. John Hickenlooper added his signature during an event last month at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
The changes aimed to help CU and other institutions carry out their missions with less red tape and focused on four key areas:
- Capital construction and facilities
- Student issues
- Employee issues
- Operational flexibility
At CU, many of the changes require policy development and implementation. Details will be announced in CU Connections in the weeks ahead.
