The University of Colorado Boulder Rural Network is a cross-campus group of CU Boulder professionals who support access to and success through CU Boulder for students from rural communities, as well as support the university charge to serve the entire state of Colorado. The CU Boulder Rural Network was started in April 2020 following conversations with individuals, groups and departments across the university who had interest in supporting rural students, were doing outreach programming in rural places or recognized that there was a lack of CU Boulder attention to rurality as an underrepresented identity. Focus areas include access and recruitment, retention and success, and advocacy and awareness.
