Washington Post: Backers of the ambitious plan to build a private university outside Denver that would focus on the former president's economic and diplomatic principles asked the Colorado legislature this week to endorse the idea. With a 200-acre campus site donated by a prominent Colorado Republican, the plans call for construction to begin next year and a student body of 10,000 to be in classes before the end of the decade.
"We have worked with an architect, and we think we're looking at an $850 million construction budget," said Terry Walker, a former professor and administrator at the University of Louisiana who is serving as founding president of the proposed school. "We are planning for a full-scale university, with a law school, business school and a graduate school of foreign affairs and public policy. We also want a performing arts school, to reflect the president's long movie career."
Classes include ecomonic theory..."How to borrow your way to prosperity"...astrophysics..."Star Wars: It's not just a movie"...Foreign policy..."Evil Warlords, Dictators, and Terrorists: Why we should support them, with special week -- Why America Loves Saddam Hussein." Drama..."How not to be upstaged by a chimp!"
