Regent Irene Griego, right, speaks as University of Colorado President Bruce Benson listens in June 2017. ( Joe Amon / The Denver Post )What began as hushed conversations Thursday evolved into group discussions taking up much of Friday's University of Colorado Board of Regents annual winter retreat: the regents want more guidance from CU President Bruce Benson and assurances that they'll play a major role in selecting his successor.
The University of Colorado is discussing establishing new policies around freedom of speech on campus modeled after the University of Chicago’s stance arguing colleges shouldn’t ban speakers or censor speech, even if thought “offensive” or “disagreeable.”The proposal to craft CU’s own free speech stance was brought during a CU regents’ meeting Wednesday morning in Denver.
'What's the cost of this dysfunction?' one regent asksThe University of Colorado Board of Regents, top leadership and staff gathered in a Colorado Springs conference room Thursday for an annual winter retreat that served as a group therapy session.

@Baby_Namu@pamparkerfine I asked questions, just as you are now asking of me. You seem to understand the value in asking questions and gathering more information than what is out there, so I hope you understand the important role of the press in providing that.
@Baby_Namu Those things are definitely helpful but in no way capture a full meeting that usually goes off in many different directions nor do they capture important quotes, context, background, history, etc.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
