CU Regents vote to approve in-state tuition status for out-of-state Indigenous peoples
At its regular meeting on Thursday, Nov. 12, which was hosted remotely, the University of Colorado Board of Regents heard updates on financial aid and student debt, as well as efforts on the Boulder campus to improve the student experience. They also received a written report about systemwide diversity and inclusion efforts.
The board passed a resolution by a 7-2 vote that the University of Colorado system administration shall work with the Colorado General Assembly to seek approval for in-state tuition status for out-of-state Indigenous peoples whose tribal nations are historically tied to the lands that make up the state of Colorado.
The board also voted to approve a resolution that “the University of Colorado system administration shall continue collaborating with Indigenous community members and leaders across the campuses on a variety of issues to further strengthen the university’s relationship with Indigenous and native communities.”
