Denver (AP) The University of Colorado says it would have to change some admissions programs and scholarships if voters pass a ballot initiative banning it from considering gender, race, ethnicity, color or national origin in education.

Amendment 46 would ban state-supported institutions from considering those factors in employment, contracting or education.

CU has about 100 donor-sponsored scholarships with eligibility requirements that might include a student's gender, race or ethnicity. The school says it'll work with donors to make sure scholarships are legal, if there are any changes in law.

CU president Bruce Benson says the school will continue to regard diversity as a fundamental value, regardless of the election.
