Research Institutes

Researchers from JILA

CU-Boulder's 11 research institutes account for more than half of all sponsored research dollars at the university – and they employ some of the most productive researchers in the country. With more than 900 researchers, students, and supporting staff, the institutes make a major contribution to the university's research and education missions as well as the local and area economy. 

Establishing a New Institute
The formation of institutes begins with the submission of proposals to the Vice Chancellor for Research and requires final approval by the CU Board of Regents. See the establishment procedures.
