The CSU System works for Colorado

It’s one thing to be located in a community, another entirely to be part of it. To know its attributes, its successes, and its challenges. To be a dedicated partner in seeking solutions that position communities and their citizens for the future.

The Colorado State University System and its three campuses are just such partners for the state of Colorado. Our programs and our alumni are ingrained in communities across the state, joining every day with fellow citizens, policymakers, businesses, and organizations to spark innovation, hone ideas, and improve economic vibrancy and quality of life for the people of Colorado.

At the heart of our work is a profound mission: providing access to educational excellence and opportunities that arise from it.

State magazine introduces readers to myriad ways the Colorado State University System and its three campuses – Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CSU-Pueblo, and CSU-Global Campus – work on behalf of our students, our state, its people, and the landscape we hold dear. State describes robust teaching, research, outreach, and partnerships on the Western Slope, in the Rocky Mountains, on the Front Range, on the Eastern Plains, and in the Mile High City of Denver.

Together, we make Colorado our home – and our state.
