Our strategic planning process has led us to a new shared vision for transforming CU Boulder into one of the nation's leading public research universities. The vision includes the contributions of a variety of individuals, and it recognizes CU-Boulder's ongoing statutory mission as a "comprehensive graduate research university with selective admissions." In it, we challenge ourselves to become a "new flagship university" within the next quarter-century:

The University of Colorado at Boulder will become a leading model of the "new flagship university" of the 21st century—by redefining learning and discovery in a global context and setting new standards in education, research, scholarship, and creative work that will benefit Colorado and the world.
