Do stories in the Coloradan ever make you think differently, inspire you to want to learn more or even take action? Have you ever brought up the topic around the dinner table or shared the story with a fellow CU Boulder alum? That kind of community-led discussion is the impetus for the new dialogue series: Coloradan Conversations. 

Each Coloradan Conversation will bring alumni together to discuss a singular topic or theme relevant not only on campus, but around the world. Rather than listening to a lecture, this series invites alumni to engage and connect with thought leaders and fellow Forever Buffs about topics presented in the Coloradan alumni magazine. 

We’re so glad you joined us for the first-ever Coloradan Conversation. Now, it’s time to move discussion into action. Take a look at the wide array of opportunities and resources available — from giving to volunteering to learning, your participation matters.
