students viewing the indigenous mural space in the visual arts complex on cu boulder campus

In order to adequately fulfill its mission and support the primarily Indigenous students in  communities in Colorado and beyond CUUB must have a reciprocal relationship with its host institution, CU Boulder. As such, CUUB strives to make the campus climate more inclusive and equitable, specifically with respect to Indigenous students, faculty and staff. 

Currently, Indigenous students are the least represented racial/ethnic group on CU Boulder's campus, and Indigenous faculty and staff are also underserved and underrepresented. CUUB is committed to using its position on campus as an affiliate of ODECE, CNAIS and the CU LEAD Alliance to reverse these trends and build networks of support so Indigenous communities can thrive.

Colorado American Indian Tribes In-State Tuition Act

Under this new act, signed into law on June 28, 2021, a student who would not otherwise qualify for in-state tuition and who is a registered member of one of the federally recognized American Indian tribes with historical ties to Colorado is eligible to be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes starting with the 2021–22 academic year.
