On behalf of my colleagues on the University of Colorado Board of Regents, we send our thoughts and prayers to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Garrett Swasey, who was killed today in the line of duty. We have lost one of our own in heroic service to our community. The University of Colorado family is grateful for his service and saddened by his death.

Statement from the CU Board of Regents

The University of Colorado Board of Regents endorses and supports President Benson's and Chancellor DiStefano's statements opposing the American Studies Association resolution calling for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions. One of the board's guiding principles is to promote diversity "... to ensure the rich interchange of ideas in the pursuit of truth and learning, including diversity of political, geographic, cultural, intellectual, and philosophical perspectives." The boycott runs counter to that ideal, and to the entire notion of why the university exists.
