Greenwood Village, Colorado (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is pleased to announce that Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed House Bill 12-1220 on April, 12, 2012 granting of a separate article under the Colorado State University System. CSU-Global Campus, the first 100% online public university in the United States, becomes an equal member in representation under the Board of Governors as the ground campuses of CSU in Fort Collins and Pueblo.
The Bill amends several statutes relating to the Colorado State University System including increasing the number of advisory members on the Board of Governors from thirteen to fifteen to include one student in good standing from CSU-Global and one faculty member. While these new additions are non-voting members, the equal representation for CSU-Global ensures that the needs of its adult learners are addressed.
“The passage of this bill represents the critical next step to increasing education in Colorado and beyond,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president of CSU-Global Campus. “The Colorado State University System has long been an example of innovation and quality, and we are excited to be able to continue this tradition with additional focus on the needs of CSU-Global’s unique student body of underserved, nontraditional adult learners.”
With 5,500 active students and 775 total graduates, CSU-Global expands the state’s economy by increasing the accessibility and affordability of higher education for adults in Colorado and beyond. The equal representation within the CSU System Board of Governors provided by House Bill 12-1220 follows the university being granted independent, regional accreditation by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in 2011.
