Richard Murray for CU Regent

A Stronger CU, A Better Colorado

Richard is a dedicated alumnus and former Student Body President of the University of Colorado -- and the product of public education from childhood to law school -- who will work tirelessly towards providing affordable, accessible, inclusive, and world-class higher education to Coloradans.  For two decades, CU has been a central part of Richard's life and he has maintained strong ties serving his alma mater.  Richard is running for CU Regent because he deeply cares about the future of the next generation of Coloradans and working to solve the important issues facing higher education in Colorado. 

As a "Double Buff" alum (undergraduate and law degrees), Richard is the beneficiary of what CU has to offer and he now wants to pay it forward by working to invest in our State's future -- its students.  Richard knows firsthand the financial burdens facing students to obtain a college education and has the experience and passion to tackle the issue starting on day one.  Richard has extensive experience in managing budgets, addressing financial issues, and leading large organizations.  He previously served as the president of a multi-million dollar education nonprofit organization, he oversaw a nearly $30 million student union budget at CU, and he served on the budget committees for the statewide Colorado Bar Association and the Denver Bar Association.

Richard's background and experience as a former Student Body President at CU Boulder with in-depth experience with the CU Administration, as the immediate past Chair of the CU Law Alumni Board, as the former president of a multi-million dollar educational nonprofit, and having served on and led numerous boards and committees (see ABOUT), provide him the unique qualifications to best serve Congressional District 6 as your next CU Regent, to manage CU's finances, work to lower tuition, build an inclusive community, promote world-class academic and research excellence, and support athletics.  Learn about Richard's endorsements and campaign updates under NEWS.

The CU Board of Regents oversees the four-campus CU System -- the third largest employer in the state -- and its nearly $5 billion budget.  The Board of Regents consists of nine members, one elected from each of Colorado's seven congressional districts and two elected statewide. The Regents are constitutionally charged with general supervision of the University and the control and direction of all funds and appropriations, they hire the University's President and other top University officials, and they set tuition and policies.  All registered voters in Congressional District 6 can vote to elect Richard to serve on the Board of Regents.  For more information about Regents, click here.
