Take Me To Your Leader: A Colorado College Round-Up

    With all the recent hullabaloo over Bruce Benson voted to head up the University of Colorado, let’s take a look at the bios of some of Colorado’s other college presidents and provosts. Benson, a longtime Republican Party leader, has been criticized for holding only a bachelor’s degree in geology from the college he oversees, though he has said that, “I don’t think you need to have a Ph.D. in anything to talk to legislators and raise money.”

    He’s also been praised as a straight shooter who is likely to be able to raise gobs of money for Colorado’s premier state institution.

    Other Colorado college leaders also have a wealth of experience, including a former governor of Ohio and ambassador to India who once ran the Peace Corps, as well as others with doctorates of chemistry, law and management. The following is a round-up of other chiefs, along with their shortened bios courtesy of the institutions they represent.
