From the Provost: Living the Colorado Creed

Sept. 12, 2016

Those debates and disagreements appear sharper and less open to compromise during an election season, particularly an election with as much acrimony as the one currently underway. It is during times like these when it becomes incumbent upon us, as members of the CU Boulder community, to remember the Colorado Creed and how we can choose to live its values.
