By the year 2030, CU Boulder will become one of the nation's leading public comprehensive research universities, contributing to the future of Colorado and enhancing the well-being of humankind through excellence in teaching, research, creative works and service. We believe Flagship 2030 will help us accomplish that goal, through near-term actions and investments that will sustain our quality and competitiveness and through visionary "flagship initiatives" that will transform the university within the next quarter-century.

Following approval by the University of Colorado Board of Regents, our next steps will include assigning task forces to expand upon the initiatives, creating detailed action plans with performance measures, integrating the plan into the university's budget cycle, implementing specific initiatives, and providing regular progress reports and updates.
