Space CommandThe University of Colorado Boulder has been selected as a United States Space Command Academic Engagement Enterprise member. The new national program is designed to expand collaboration and academic exchanges between universities and U.S. Space Command.

Space Command has four key goals for the program:

  • Engage the future workforce
  • Increase space applied research and innovation
  • Expand space-focused analytic partnerships
  • Enrich the strategic dialogue on space

The program will have particular impact in developing training for members of the still new Space Force military branch, which was established in 2019, but its impact will be felt across all branches of the military and into the civilian space realm..CU Boulder was invited by Space Command to apply to the program, which was created in 2022. The initiative has particular relevance to the aerospace department but the partnership applies university-wide.
