The University of Colorado is nothing if not ambitious. Through education, research, and service to the community at large, CU faculty and students are tackling today’s challenges and preparing for those of the future.
The University of Colorado has thus launched a $1.5 billion comprehensive fundraising campaign—the biggest in university history—to lay the groundwork for our success. The campaign will enable CU to continue to provide students with access to a world-class education and augment the university’s role as an economic driver and generator of knowledge. Our college's portion of this overall goal is $75 million.
I invite you, as part of this campaign, to help us create a strong future for the College of Engineering and Applied Science that builds on our legacy and helps to achieve our vision for excellence. Campaign donors can make a world of difference by investing in the people, places, and programs that comprise these four pillars of excellence and impact:
Learning and Teaching — Initiatives that provide experiential and customized experiences for students
Through initiatives such as our Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, and Earn-Learn and Discovery Learning apprenticeships, more students are succeeding in engineering and getting support for their education.
Discovery and Innovation — Engineering research that breaks down traditional boundaries to solve the toughest challenges
We emphasize interdisciplinary research because we believe global issues such as health, environment, and energy require the concerted efforts of individuals from multiple disciplines working together.
Community and Culture — Activities that support and engage students from a variety of backgrounds
We are taking a national lead in pre-collegiate engineering education to inspire and prepare a broad range of K-12 students for engineering study and future careers. Within the college, our BOLD Center takes an inclusive approach to promoting student success and retention.
Health and Wellness — Breakthroughs that improve and extend our lives
From the new biotechnology building, which will enhance interdisciplinary science and engineering discovery, to our unique Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities, we are advancing human health and wellness around the world.
You can learn more about these and other initiatives by the college, along with our fundraising priorities, on this website or by contacting Ann Scott, director of development at the CU Foundation, at email@example.com.
We can help you find a giving opportunity that reflects the values you cherish. Don’t underestimate your power to make a difference!
