As part of our vision for CU Engineering, we want to reach out to all corners of Colorado to find the best and brightest students who reflect the state’s diverse demographics. To begin making that happen, Dean Bobby Braun and his wife, Karen, set out on an inaugural tour of the state from Sept. 19-22.
From meeting future engineers at Animas High School to lunch with students at Front Range Community College, Bobby and Karen covered a lot of ground. At stops in Durango, Alamosa, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Longmont, the Brauns visited students, teachers and school administrators to discuss the future of engineering in Colorado and beyond, learn more about the communities around Colorado, and plan future educational collaborations. Each evening, they met with local alumni to discuss the impact CU Engineering is having on the state and nation.
Learning from students, families and educators across the state who are interested in engineering sharpened Braun’s focus on the need for increased access and opportunity to the educational pathways provided by CU’s College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Braun plans to make the trip an annual affair, visiting different parts of the state each time he hits the road. For more information about the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, sign up for updates.
