    I think we're getting very close to a point where CU tells the State of Colorado "Thanks, but no thanks" to funding in return for near total autonomy. The State will continue to own the buildings and the real estate, but beyond that will have very little influence. CU is in the midst of a $1.5B capital campaign that will help fund things like scholarships & other operating costs.

    Could be the best of both worlds, with any luck.

    The "employee issues" part has already taken off - CU is moving towards making all employees "at will" (Professional Exempt). "Classified" employees will first be given the option to move to Professional Exempt, and some to most will voluntarily, but all open Classified positions will switch to Exempt. This will save the University alot of money over time for a variety of reasons.
