The Colorado Creed

As a member of the Boulder community and the University of Colorado Boulder, I agree to:

  • Act with honor, integrity and accountability in my interactions with students, faculty, staff, and neighbors.
  • Respect the rights of others and accept our differences.
  • Contribute to the greater good of this community.

These values are reinforced by our Inclusive Excellence Initiative.  CU Boulder’s identity is defined by respect for diversity and inclusivity.
