(1) The governing board of any state institution of higher education has the authority
to promulgate rules and regulations for the safety and welfare of students, employees,
and property, to promulgate rules and regulations necessary for the governance of
the respective institutions, and to promulgate rules and regulations deemed necessary
to carry out the provisions of sections 23-5-106 to 23-5-110. Western Colorado university shall not refuse to admit any Colorado resident qualified
in accordance with applicable Colorado commission on higher education admission standards.
(2) The governing board of any state institution of higher education shall not promulgate
any rules or regulations that restrict or prohibit on-campus recruiting by any local,
state, or federal governmental agency; except that recruiting activities by any local,
state, or federal governmental agency shall be subject to the same time, place, or
manner restrictions that apply to other entities that conduct recruiting on campus.
(3) If a governing board of an institution of higher education requires a student
to purchase health-care insurance, the board must allow the same exemption for those
participating in a health-care sharing ministry as specified in the federal “Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act”.
(4) The governing board of a state institution of higher education that is designated
as an enterprise pursuant to section 23-5-101.7 may contract to indemnify and hold harmless a contractor if the governing board determines
that the contract serves a valid public purpose and any risks to the institution that
may arise from entering into the contract are sufficiently limited and outweighed
by the benefits of the contract. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, a liability claim or
expense that arises from a contract to indemnify or hold harmless entered into by
a governing board pursuant to this subsection (4) shall not be payable from the risk
management fund created in section 24-30-1510, C.R.S., and shall be payable solely from revenues of the institution.
