CU LEAD Alliance


The CU LEAD Alliance is a unique set of academic learning communities whose students, faculty and staff are united to promote inclusive excellence. These “academic neighborhoods” build camaraderie and promote student success during the first-year and throughout students’ four years through a rich array of: 1) cohort experiences, 2) participation scholarships, 3) academic enrichment activities, and 4) community-building activities.


In CU LEAD, we believe “No one does it alone.”
