Too Much Tuition, CU
A CU student led initiative for
a tuition reimbursement from fairness and student representation within the University of Colorado.
(Updated on 2/3/21 to express new objectives. We still deserve tuition reimbursements.)
this isn't over, University of Colorado.
They are not taking care of their students, they're taking their students' money.
After a strong attempt to reduce spring tuition, CU ultimately did not make the fair and right decision at the November 12th meeting. But it does not end there. Too Much Tuition, CU is back to demand that students are heard and represented. The University of Colorado would not be here without them, yet we don't seem to be any of their priorities. Time to remind them that we're not just sitting ducks.
CARES funds were $68 million in November, yet they couldn't find out where the tuition reimbursement money would come from. Now, with the new Biden administration, they're expecting more federal funding. Students should expect some too.
Students don't know the board, the board doesn't know the students. There is a level of intimidation when approaching the regents, and a lack of representation of the students by the regents. This can be fixed with a fellow student on the board.
The Regent Accountability, Feedback & Transparency Committee will bridge the gap between the CU leadership and the students they are expected to serve. Students will have a voice and leadership will know current student issues in real time.
transparency and representation and funds:
How to make it happen?
Great question! We need to get our objectives on the agenda of the April 8th meeting. How do we do THAT!?
The short answer is to put external pressures from the community on the Board of Regents.
Here are some simple ways to do that:
Sign this petition!!! (and provide your email to stay up to date!)
Share social media posts on your personal accounts and tag #ShareTheCares #WheresMyMoneyMark and #RAFTcommittee
EMAIL ALL THE REGENTS YOURSELF!
Express your dissatisfaction with the lack of reduced tuition publicly and loudly.
Sign up to speak at the Board of Regents Meetings.
Spread the word about the issue and let people know that there is hope!
Do not ease up!
More methods coming soon! Stay tuned!

Mission of the project
A change of program calls for a change of price.
But in the battle for a change of price, unacceptable behavior within CU leadership was uncovered. There was a lack of transparency.
A lack of student representation or interest.
A lack of listening to student issues
And there wasn't even an attempt to try to solve issues when they were brought to light.
