CU may add politics to nondiscrimination policy

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The University of Colorado Regents will consider amending their policies to bar discrimination on the basis of political affiliation.

The Boulder Daily Camera reported Wednesday the proposal stems from concern among some regents that the university has a liberal bias, especially the Boulder campus.

Regents will discuss the proposal at their Sept. 16-17 meeting. A subcommittee endorsed the proposal Tuesday.

A similar resolution went before the full board in June, but regents asked for more information.

The nine-member board is elected and currently has a Republican majority.

Allegations of liberal bias are occasionally raised against the university. In June, regents approved a survey to determine whether the system respects diversity, including in political views.

The Boulder campus also has a new position of visiting conservative scholar, funded by donations.
