CU Advocacy Day at the State Capitol provide advocates and guests an unique opportunity to hear from higher education leaders, elected officials and CU experts. The goal is to better prepare attendees to promote the university's educational, research, public service and economic contributions, as well as raise awareness about the state's funding outlook and to dispel commonly held myths about CU and public higher education.
The program will provide information you need to help influence public opinion about CU and higher education with elected officials and others in your community. Colorado's governor John Hickenlooper will offer remarks as well as CU President Benson. You will also hear about:
• CU myth busters
• Funding outlook
• Legislative preview for CU
• UNIQUE CENTERS AT CU
National Mental Health Innovation Center | Matt Vogl, Executive Director, CU Anschutz Medical Campus
Center for Western Civilization, Thought and Policy | Bob Kaufman, Fifth Visiting Scholar of Conservative Thought and Policy, CU Boulder
The program will be followed by a special legislative reception from 5-7 p.m. providing an opportunity to speak and connect with elected officials. Legislative reception is SOLD OUT, but a waitlist is being accepted.
