Responsibility of governing boards of constituent institutions
(1)Except as may be expressly provided in this article, the respective governing boards of the constituent institutions are charged with the responsibility for, and shall plan, initiate, manage, and control, their respective programs within the Colorado system of higher education as provided in this article; and, in addition, said respective boards shall initiate and control joint academic and vocational programs among two or more of the constituent institutions at the center.
(2)The respective governing boards of the constituent institutions shall provide for a common academic calendar which is sufficient so that students may begin, make progress toward, and complete a course at a time which will allow full opportunity for enrollment in courses offered at any of the three constituent institutions. Registration periods shall coincide and the academic year shall commence and terminate simultaneously.
(3)The respective governing boards of the constituent institutions shall provide that credits earned at each of the constituent institutions shall be transferable between institutions insofar as they meet the degree and grade requirements of the student’s chosen program of studies at one of the constituent institutions as determined by the degree-granting institution.
(4)The governing boards, through their respective chief executive officers, with the participation of the executive director of the commission on higher education, shall jointly draft a memorandum of agreement covering interinstitutional issues at the Auraria campus. The memorandum of agreement shall provide guidance and direction to the Auraria board in the determination of operationally related matters but shall not bind or otherwise limit the board in its authority to manage the Auraria campus. An initial memorandum of agreement shall be submitted to the commission on higher education to be forwarded to the general assembly not later than January 15, 1990.
