Focus Areas


Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the forefront of everything we do at the University of Colorado and are integral to our strategic planning for the future. We are committed to building a community of students, faculty and staff that advances these fundamental values, in which every individual – regardless of race, identity, ideology, perspective, religion or background – feels accepted and supported.


As one of the nation’s premier public research universities, the University of Colorado provides a high-quality, transformative education at an affordable cost. We are committed to excellence and accessibility as we foster collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship to drive student success. Through our world-class teaching, learning, research, service and health care, CU makes significant contributions to the state and citizens of Colorado.

Serving the State

As Colorado’s flagship university system, CU’s four campuses serve the state and beyond through leadership in high-quality education and professional training, public service, advancing research and knowledge, and state-of-the-art health care. CU strives to be an economic, social and cultural catalyst for Colorado.

Student and Faculty Achievement

More than 480,000 people around the world use what they learned at CU to shape business, government, education and communities. And they learn from the best: CU boasts world-class faculty on all four campuses that include five Nobel laureates and 10 MacArthur Genius Fellows. We celebrate the achievements of these faculty – today’s experts in their fields – and the successes of our students – tomorrow’s leaders.

Free Speech and Viewpoint Diversity

At the University of Colorado, we teach students how to think, not what to think. Among our guiding principles is the promotion of faculty, student and staff diversity to ensure the rich interchange of ideas that includes diverse political, geographic, cultural, intellectual and philosophical perspectives. We also regard freedom of expression on our campuses as one of our underlying values, and encourage the use of reason and debate when encountering divergent perspectives and opinions.
