The University of Colorado Boulder campus ranked 58th in 2009 among U.S. universities in undergraduate enrollment, with more than 38,000 students there.

UC Boulder Chancellor Confirms Marijuana Still Illegal on Campus

University Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano's January message reminds the community that legalizing recreational marijuana in the state has not made it legal on the Boulder campus.

University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano recently reminded the community that marijuana use is illegal on the campus. His January message included a reminder that the state law that legalized recreational marijuana as of Jan. 1, 2014, hasn't made its use legal on the Boulder campus.

"The new year came with a new law, and while most know marijuana legalization in Colorado began Jan. 1, fewer may be aware that marijuana consumption remains illegal in public, is illegal in all areas of campus due to federal law, and possession of any amount of marijuana remains illegal for those under 21. Further, marijuana remains prohibited by campus policy in all our residence halls, in all campus buildings and on all campus grounds. New students and parents have been informed of this during orientation sessions, while spring semester returning students are being reminded of this through student communication channels. I would like to reinforce the fact that state law and campus policy will be enforced on campus," DiStefano wrote.

He also included a report on a White House summit of university leaders to discuss how their universities can help more low-income students enroll in and complete college, and he announced that three faculty members will go to Washington, D.C., soon to accept prestigious early career fellowships.
