We believe in supporting each other and valuing everyone who is part of our community. Our values are expected of all Buffs and lead our actions in the classroom, on campus and in our community. They define who we are and what we stand for. We are Buffs, together.


At CU Boulder, we commit to building a more diverse and inclusive campus community. We value different backgrounds, identities and perspectives and believe that engagement with a wide range of ideas and viewpoints can help students learn and grow. This is the foundation of a good education.

Our campus promotes an anti-racist and anti-discriminatory environment––one in which everyone thrives. We believe that supportive interactions based in mutual dignity are foundational to a productive learning environment and a college experience that can foster lifelong connections, friendships and intellectual communities.

Racist, sexist, homophobic and other discriminatory actions are unacceptable at CU Boulder. Our campus community is committed to providing all students, researchers, scholars, faculty and staff with equitable opportunities to pursue their academic and career goals, in part by preventing and addressing discrimination, harassment, bullying or other behaviors that undermine these goals.

Our success as a campus community relies on mutual respect, collaboration and a commitment to incorporating inclusion in our learning and development. Valuing individuals and their contributions and working to understand  others underpin the integrity of our university. We want CU Boulder to be a place where you are both supported and can belong.
