An update on the implementation of the IDEA Plan

An update on the implementation of the IDEA Plan 1

2020-08-28 10:30:37

CU Boulder's Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan is being implemented this fall and serves as a blueprint for the campus’s action on diversity, equity and inclusion based on calls for meaningful change from students, faculty and staff.

“To uphold the IDEA Plan’s guiding principles, we must remain true to them while at the same time being nimble and willing to correct our course to achieve success. We have heard and will continue to learn from the concerns of current BIPOC students, allies and others who are members of our campus community and have a vested interest in our collective success as the state’s flagship public research university––and in the success of all communities of color at CU Boulder.
We thank our students, faculty and staff for holding us accountable, and we invite anyone who was not part of this transformative process at its inception to join us now as we work to bring about meaningful and lasting change.”

Congratulations to BVSD Board of Education President Tina Marquis. Last night she received the 2019 McGuffey Award from the Colorado Association of School Boards, virtually during CASB's Fall Regional Meeting.

The McGuffey Award honors unique board members who bring committed and passionate service to their board work. More information is available at: https://www.casb.org/mcguffey-awards

As you may know, Marquis has served on BVSD's Board of Education since 2013 and as president the past three years.

The following is an excerpt from the nomination, submitted by a fellow board member:
"She has a deep understanding of board governance and has led us through these past tumultuous months with a steady hand. She has been a calming presence in the midst of the unknown and many times is the voice of reason. Tina is committed to equity, not only at the board level, but for our entire district. We haven’t met anyone who can analyze complicated data, translate it, and create graphics as well as Tina is able to do. She has led us through our board’s first complete policy analysis and revision. She is a passionate advocate for public education and understands education issues at all levels of government. Tina's ability to see the big picture has been a great asset to our board. Her focus is always on our students and communities, through engagement and transparency. It has been an honor to serve with her."

CU Boulder isn’t alone: Across the country, many universities have seen similar spikes in COVID-19 cases. At the same time, some experts also see glimmers of hope in the stories of other schools, such as the University of Notre Dame, that seem to have slowed outbreaks by pausing in-person learning.

At CU Boulder, campus leaders are cautiously optimistic that the transition to online-only classes, along with the public health order, will help bend the university’s curve—lowering infection rates so that Buffs can again sit in the same rooms as their instructors and classmates.
