Stephany Rose Spaulding Endorses Ilana

“As a current tenured professor in the CU system I recognize the challenges first hand that our students, faculty and staff face. Having Ilana Spiegel on the CU Board of Regents ensures that the voices of students, faculty and staff are not marginalized as we address funding crises, equity and inclusion issues and overall morale for our campuses.”

Stephany’s first exposure to issues of inequality came at a young age. She was raised on Chicago’s South Side by public school teacher-parents who sometimes struggled to make ends meet. Guided by a deep faith, her parents personified sacrifice and hard work as they held down jobs, attended college and raised five children. Her parents’ love of education was passed on to Stephany, whose studies culminated in a Ph.D. in American Studies from Purdue University and the pursuit of a teaching career that would examine many of the issues she confronted as an African-American girl.
