As members of the University of Colorado Boulder, our history, our present and our commitment to the future compel us to cultivate diversity, embrace equity, and strive to be a just, welcoming and inclusive institution.

Our campus stands upon land within the traditional territories of the Arapaho, Cheyenne and Ute peoples, in a state that was once partially possessed by Mexico. 

It is comprised of and served communities that include immigrants, the descendants of enslaved peoples, and people who represent a range of gender and sexual identities. 

Creating an institution that authentically includes and values diverse histories, experiences and perspectives strengthens our university and its ability to serve the public.
