The University of Colorado Board of Regents is set to address big-picture issues at its winter retreat beginning Friday, with the agenda including discussion of a strategic vision and goals for CU, as well as a board self-assessment.
The retreat at President Bruce Benson’s Silverthorne ranch concludes Saturday.
Work on the strategic vision and goals will be facilitated by Ellen Chaffee, Ph.D., senior fellow at the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB). She is a past president of Valley City State University and Mayville State University, both part of the North Dakota University System. Chaffee has published five books and dozens of articles in refereed journals, and has served on and consulted with more than 50 governing boards and national organizations in higher education research, health care, allied health and foundations.
The weekend’s agenda also includes executive sessions.
The board’s next regular meeting is set for Feb. 19-20 at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
