CU’s most important values and priorities are under assault, and CU is ready for a new generation of leadership. Raising my family, teaching, and serving the community for over two decades, I know public service is about serving the public interest, not special interests. I will fight to protect the University of Colorado’s values.
Upholding CU's Values
Ilana has dedicated her life’s work to protecting Colorado’s students, teachers, and families.
As your University of Colorado Regent I will defend academic freedom, fight for opportunities for all students, faculty, and staff, and protect the University’s most important values and priorities.
My education and leadership skills were developed working in diverse and inclusive education systems, and with students and families in diverse communities.
I grew up learning that hard work and helping others sparks positive change. After decades in public education, I will work tirelessly to protect our wonderful University of Colorado and its people as our next Regent.
The Board of Regents has nine elected members, and is responsible for the general supervision of the university and the exclusive control and direction of all funds and appropriations to the university.

We need Ilana Dubin Spiegel to be elected as CU Regent. Colorado, please rally behind her! A critical juncture for our state and the future of education. She’s brilliant, caring, and sincere!Patrick Allen, Teacher at Frontier Valley Elementary School
Ilana doesn't fight for equity and access because it fits a political agenda or worldview. She works for it and she lives the fight because she understands the blessings of our shared humanity at the most basic level. That love and commitment shine through in everything she does. It's why she's effective and it's what inspires me about her as a leader and an advocate.Amy Drayer, Author and LGBTQ+ advocate
One application, there was a question of who inspired you to apply for the program... I wrote your name, Ilana. I remember back when I cried in your kitchen telling you I might join the Army just so I could go to school. You said ‘there's got to be another way’ as if you were reading my mind. You inspired me to look into different schools and you gave me tools to figure it out. And from there, I found a better way to make it all happen. You inspire me to have a family just like yours one day. Your home is filled with love and respect and lots of laughter! I am so forever grateful for you. Ana Marie Geck, Non-Traditional Age Higher Ed Latina Student
