CU Engineering GOLD Board Mission Statement
“... To enhance the relationship between the CU College of Engineering and Applied Science and its recent graduates in a way that encourages alumni to maintain their close connections with the college and university at large, while simultaneously adding value to the reputation and contributions of the college and furthering its mission and vision.”

The CU Engineering Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD) Board seeks to unite recent alumni with one another and with the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The GOLD Board hosts social events and organizes volunteer opportunities so recent alumni can get involved with the university, connect with one another, and have fun along the way. Past events include happy hours, sporting events, family events, and community and engineering outreach. The GOLD Board also recognizes the achievements of recent graduates through the CU Engineering Recent Alumni Award and other university honors.
