TO: All CU-Boulder students
FROM: Frank Bruno, Vice Chancellor for Administration
DATE: April 17, 2009
SUBJECT: A message on safety issues and the 420 campus gathering
We would like to take the opportunity to advise members of the
community who may be participating in, or impacted by the unsanctioned
"420" gathering on the CU-Boulder campus, of a few basic things to be
aware of regarding the event.
The University of Colorado at Boulder is committed to the health,
safety and academic success of our students, and encourages them to
avoid any behavior that may put them at risk.
The campus administration believes the annual 4/20 event is not an
effective way for students to influence changes in the law regarding
As in the past, CU-Boulder's campus police will maintain an appropriate presence as they would at any campus gathering.
CU Police will monitor the event for health and safety issues or problems.
We will treat this gathering in similar fashion as any major crowd
event on campus. We ask that you be aware of your surroundings, respect
the people around you, obey police and CU officials' requests at all
times, and not engage in any activity that threatens your safety or the
property of the campus.
As with any other gathering on campus, public safety hazards will
not be permitted. Public safety hazards include barbecue grills, glass
bottles of any kind, trampolines, slack lines, water slides, and other
items that create a risk for persons in the area.
Vendors will not be allowed to participate in the 4/20 gathering.
Tables or other equipment that could damage university property will
not be permitted.
Violators may be issued summonses.
Crowd size issues could limit immediate access to some CU buildings in some circumstances.
Thank you for your attention and your cooperation,
Vice chancellor for Administration
