Our Creed

The Colorado Creed

As a member of the Boulder community and the University of Colorado Boulder, I agree to:

  • Act with honor, integrity and accountability in my interactions with students, faculty, staff and neighbors.
    • We are bridge builders and community creators
    • We expect excellence and hold each other accountable in an environment where it is safe to fail
    • We act with integrity, even when no one is looking
  • Respect the rights of others and accept our differences.
    • We assume positive intent and extend kindness
    • We communicate with transparency
    • We listen deeply
    • We cultivate trust, joy and a space for everyone
    • We respect all perspectives and diversity
  • Contribute to the greater good of this community.
    • We bring our expertise to passionately serve the University as advocates for the University, its programs, alumni, parents, donors, friends, the Boulder community and the state of Colorado
    • We advance the spirit of philanthropy
    • We celebrate our successes

I will strive to uphold these principles in all aspects of my collegiate experience and beyond.
