Mission Statement

As stated in our statutory mission, the University of Colorado Boulder is a comprehensive graduate research university with selective admissions. This translates to the confluence of superb teaching, research, scholarship, creative work and service that distinguish a flagship university, as well as the flexibility to engage in the emerging cultural, societal and scientific challenges of the world. One of our goals is to expand our longstanding excellence in interdisciplinary research and creative work to become a global leader in collaborative ventures that span traditional academic fields in pursuit of discoveries and innovations that serve the greater good. Another of our goals is to continue our growth as an international research university with a globally engaged campus community by bringing the world`s best thinkers to CU-Boulder to address global issues facing government, industry and society at large. Our third goal is to extend our strength in graduate education by adding faculty, investing in new technologies and expanding graduate programs to prepare our students for distinguished careers as future faculty and leaders in their professions. Our fourth goal to continually enhance our learning and teaching environment is facilitated by our commitments to interdisciplinary research, internationalization and excellence in graduate education, as well as by our ongoing dedication to providing undergraduate students with strong critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, problem solving, communication, foreign language and hands-on expertise by the time they graduate.
