Could lower tuition and a coonskin capped mascot be just around the corner?
Chancellor Robert Coombe has implemented one-on-one sessions with students.
The first series was held last Tuesday and all 12 slots offered were filled.
The sessions are held in the chancellor’s office in the Mary Reed Building. The sessions will be monthly events in two-hour time slots. The date and time of the February office hours have not yet been released.
Students may sign up for 10-minute time slots with the chancellor.
The student-dedicated office hours mark the third attempt by Coombe to create a dialogue between the students and DU’s administration, according to an e-mail from Coombe to students. Prior attempts included quarterly chancellor’s round tables and a blog, but “participation was very limited,” Coombe said.
“This is not intended to provide an opportunity to move disputes ‘up the ladder,’ beyond the limits set by [university] policies,” Coombe said in the e-mail. “Rather, I’d like to talk with you about what’s working and what’s not working, about the quality and depth of your experiences at DU, and to hear about how we might improve.”
