My name is Lily Weissgold and I am a double major in Microeconomics and Environmental Policy. I was born and raised in Burlington, Vermont. My previous experience at Colorado College includes serving for two years on the Colorado College Student Government Association (CCSGA), first as a First-Year Student Representative and most recently as Vice President for Outreach. I have also served on the college’s Provost’s Advisory Committee, Campus Sustainability Council, and President’s Council. In addition, I serve on the Trails Parks and Open Space (TOPS) committee in the City of Colorado Springs and as a member of the Board of Managers for the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, a local nonprofit in the Springs.
The Student Trustee is the sole student member of the Board of Trustees, the governing body that oversees Colorado College. The Board of Trustees has many crucial functions, including managing the College’s endowment and investments, hiring the College president, and approving tuition rates. As Student Trustee, I will be providing a student perspective on the Board as well as functioning as a steward of the College, focusing on its long-term goals and aims.
As a Student Trustee I aim to facilitate conversation and enhance communication between the Board of Trustees and the student body. To achieve this goal, I will be attending all Board of Trustee meetings for the year as well as the Colorado College Student Government Association (CCSGA) full council meetings, which take place every Thursday at 7:00pm. I will also be posting regularly on this blog and hosting sessions to explain the Board, college governance, and chains of command at CC.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and I look forward to a great year ahead.
