Making CU Boulder the preeminent leadership university in Colorado
You never know where the road may take you, but we know that investing in future leaders will make a positive difference.
At CU Boulder, we shape tomorrow’s leaders in order to positively impact humanity. If you want to better understand yourself and others, create an inspiring vision of the future, improve your communication skills, sharpen your critical thinking, and understand complex issues through different lenses - consider joining one of our many leadership development programs. We have academic courses, experiential learning and co-curricular leader development programing - many of which provide a certificate or minor in leadership. If you have an interest in being a better leader, CU Boulder offers a program for you.
"As chancellor, my top imperative for the university is to shape tomorrow’s leaders. While participating in a leader development program is not required to be a leader, I feel strongly that our dedicated leadership education and experiences uniquely position our graduates to positively impact humanity."
- Chancellor and Newton Chair Philip DiStefano
